The Cure for a Missing Mojo...

...CASE something!  Yesterday I told you about my creative drought and how frustrating it is when you have work to do but can't design anything that looks even half-way decent.  So I let someone else do my designing for me!  Today's project was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.  It was a repin so I'm not sure who the original designer was, but  it sure did help me get over my mojo-less-ness!  Check it out:

Thinking of You card featuring the French Foliage and En Francais stamp sets with sentiment from Sweet Essentials.
This is one of the cards I am doing at my techniques class this month.  It uses the Triple Time technique.  I chose one of my favourite Fall stamp sets (French Foliage) and one of my new favourite sentiment sets (Sweet Essentials).  My colour inspiration was the Orchard Harvest DSP, though I didn't actually use any of it here.  I just love that paper and the rich Fall hues it contains and decided to incorporate them into this design.  The colours I used were:  More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake and Island Indigo.  I quite like the hit of blue amid the otherwise warm earthy tones.  It really makes the focal panel stand out from the background. 
It's amazing what making a single decent card can do to get the ol' Mojo working again.  I have a few projects to show you this week that came about after CASE'ing this project!  Stay tuned!
