Maja Design Mood Board Challenge!

Hi! I hope you're having a lovely summer in your corner of the world. I'm super excited to share my Maja Design Mood Board Challenge project with you. If you've never participated, you'll want to start playing along right away, as the winner of the challenge receives an entire collection of Maja Design Paper! To make things even better, there's a brand new challenge every month! You'll find the mood board for June and all of the guidelines below, along with a few more photos.    

This is how we use the mood boards:  
Definition mood board – n
[a board used by designers on which samples of various colours and textures are mounted to help in deciding which elements complement each other]
We are using mood boards for our challenges. We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design. You are free to interpret the mood boards in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. Feel free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the color scheme.
We will pick a winner and present it on the Maja Design blog on December 26th.
Have in mind that these challenges are a really great way for us to discover new talents and maybe some future Creative Team members…

How to participate?

I chose Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics and Vintage Autumn Basics papers to create this card. You'll find distressed layers and stamping, along with handcrafted flowers, die cute embellishments, and bits and bobs from my stash.   

I found this little Prima resin frame in my stash and knew it would be perfect for my project.  

Thank you so very much for sharing your time with me. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful crafty family. It's time to turn the challenge over to y'all! I can't wait to see your beautiful interpretations of this gorgeous mood board!
