Playing Along with Mojo (Take 2) & Muse

Hello there! As promised yesterday, I played along with Mojo Monday again, but combined it with a new-to-me challenge, Muse! I love Mojo Monday, and combining it with a inspiration challenge works great! Here is the Mojo sketch again and the Muse for this week:

Upon initially looking at the Muse photo, I just loved the colours! I immediately thought of the Howlstooth & Scarringbone DSP (from the Holiday Mini and intended for Halloween, but really is quite versatile... really wishing I got another pack of it!) and the tangerine tango chevron paper in the pack. I wanted to encorporate some of the other colours in the Muse as well and chose daffodil delight, pool party and island indigo. Here's what I came up with:

I also wanted to play into all the different patterns in the Muse card, so the WIDE variety of designer paper that Stampin' Up offers was the perfect tool. I think Stampin' Up did a phenomenal job with their designer paper in the current catalogue and I can't wait to see what they come out with in June (but I will be for sure stocking up on my favourites!!). The cupcake from Patterned Party (Sale-a-Bration) works perfectly with this card!

Thanks for looking! Which Mojo card do you like better?

Supplies used:
Stamps: Patterned Occasions (SAB)
Paper: Island Indigo, Daffodil Delight, Summer Smooches DSP, Sycamore Street DSP (SAB), Howlstooth & Scarringbone DSP (ret), Whisper White
Ink: Island Indigo
Tools: Nestabilities Circles, 1-3/4" Circle Punch, Vine Street Embossing Folder (SAB)
