Exciting News!


Whew! I've been bursting at the seams to shout out the news...I'm now a member of the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge team! Anyone following my blog knows I'm a huge fan of Verve stamps and I've loved playing along with the mojo sketches, so this was a tremendous honor to be asked to join the Mojo Makers - thanks, Julee!  To add to my excitement is that my dear cyber friend, Marisa Ritzen, is also a new mojomaker!  OK...enough blabbing and on to my card...


This week's sketch by Julee was such a fun layout!  I love the variety of Verve flowers available and decided to layer from 2 different sets.  I distressed the edges of each panel and sponged with Antique Linen distess ink.  Paper is from MME's new Bluebell pad from their  "sweetest thing" collection.

So, here's hoping you can play along.  For more details and inspiration from the rest of the mojo designers, check it out HERE.

STAMPS: Bloom and Grow (leaves), Hope Blooms (flower), Joyful Blooms (flower), Small Phrases - all sets by Verve
PAPER: Vintage Cream, So Saffron, MME "Bluebell" DP, Old Olive
INK: Antique Linen distress ink by Tim Holtz, Versafine Onyx Black, Old Olive
ACCESSORIES: Baja Breeze seam binding by SU, Gemstone brad by Paper Studio, Elegant Leaves die by Verve, Distressing tool, Sewing machine, Sentiment flag die by Lil Inker Designs.
