Heart 2 Heart: Inspire and Mojo Monday 198

I tried to combine both H2H and Mojo Monday challenges this week; and I must say, I failed.

Here is Mojo Monday 198 sketch.

And here is the inspiration picture for the Heart 2 Heart challenge.

It all started when I wanted to create a gift card box. And when I saw the H2H inspiration picture, I visualized the cards right away. I’ve wanted to create these simple outlined cards for a while. The simplicity of it REALLY appeals to me!!! And I am pleased with them.

This is where I went wrong. I should have created a coordinating box, but no I wanted to include Mojo Monday’s sketch 198 as well. The two just didn’t click together as well as it could. But what can I say,

Next time, I’ll create two different projects.

Well here are some close up of each card that I created for the Heart 2 Heart challenge. In that picture I saw the cocktails right away. And I believe CTMH had a cocktail stamp set at one point, I didn't get it. So instead I hunted the world wide web for cocktail clip arts that I printed on cardstock and coloured in with the blending pen and the CTMH ink.

The biggest problem I had with the mojo challenge is that the front of my box left me with fairly limited space and I struggled fitting every elements on.


  1. I didn't even see the cocktails in the picture, I had to go back and look after I read your post! It was screaming flowers at me :o)

  2. The element you picked out of the H2H challenge was the drinks! How fun is that to pick one element like that and run with it! Thanks for playing at H2H and hope to see you again soon!

  3. I like your take on the inspiration picture. Choosing the drink as a focus worked quite well.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! Great job! Olena

  5. Your card set and gift box are adorable! Thanks for playing along with the H2H photo inspiration!

  6. I think you did a wonderful job combining the two challenges. =) Thanks for participating in the H2H challenge this week!

  7. Wonderful box and set of cards! Thanks for playing with Mojo Monday!
