This week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO299) offers a round or square card layout. I opted for a 5" square card and really enjoyed experimenting with the different elements of the design.
- I did a spirited happy dance when I realized I could use the Stampin' Up! Hexagon Punch to create a little pocket! I'll share a 1 Minute to "WOW!" video with details tomorrow plus another handy trick using the punch.
- I heat embossed the "stitched" stamp from Six-Sided Sampler with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. To finish off the "pocket," I added a tiny scallop border.
- Yummy! The new Stampin' Up! 3/4" Chevron Ribbon is so rich in Crushed Curry. There are a dozen colors to choose from.
- One of the color combinations in the new Stampin' Up! 2013-2014 Annual Catalog that immediately caught my eye was from Eastern Elegance Designer Series Paper (Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana, Smoky Slate and Whisper White). I used Crushed Curry and Coastal Cabana with dash of the Eastern Elegance paper.

Whisper White: 2 3/8" x 1 3/4"
Coastal Cabana: 2 1/2" x 1 7/8"
