Maja Design's May Mood Board

Morning inky friends! It's time for some glorious new inspiration at Maja Design... with.... a chance to win some lovely papers for yourself! The May Mood board has been released and all you have to do is make a card based on the sweet sentiments and heart-warming pictures and you could find yourself with a special package from Sweden! Here's a look at the card I made with this board using Maja Design's Life in the Country collection:

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

Here is a glimpse of the papers I used:

Here is the down-low on the Mood Board challenge:
The mood boards will be presented the first Tuesday every month. We will be presenting all participating creations that fulfill the requirements below May 27th. We will also draw a winner who will be winning a Maja Design collection of their own choice in 6×6 or 12×12.

After your creation is done, take a photo and send it to without any watermarks (size 600×600). Include your full address in the e-mail and what collection you would like if you win. Don’t forget to write down if you would like 6×6 or 12×12. We need your creation by May 25th at the latest. Good Luck!
