Mojo Monday



It's Mojo Monday Challenge time and Julee has a new twist on the last week of the month! We're going TALL AND SKINNY instead of round or square!  In my typical clean and layered style, I went with a 3 1/2" x 6" card and let the circle element (a Martha Stewart doily tag) "hang out" over the edge of the card.  I'm really in love with SU's Fresh Prints 4 1/2 x 6 1/2" paper stack with the color palette of Real Red, Coastal Cabana and Baked Brown Sugar! Thought it would work well for a little Valentine collage using my fave chevron heart stamp from the Chevron Love set and paired it with some poppies from the Poppy Birthday set - both by Verve.  I had this ticket and heart paper clip in my stash so opted to add that for a quick sentiment.  I added Glossy Accents to the flower centers; stamped the leaves with Baked Brown Sugar ink on white cardstock, then took an Aquapainter and swiped some Coastal Cabana ink on them and got this nice variegated bluish green look.  I cut off the stitched edge of some burlap ribbon and layered a punched strip of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock to create the border.

You'll want to check out the other talented mojomakers below for more inspiration - or you can go to the Mojo Monday blog and click on the first few thumbnails:
