Mojo Monday

Hey, hey,'s Mojo Monday Challenge time and Debbie Carriere has a really fun layout with an angled panel that I always love! There's a real baby boom going on in my side of the family and I was needing another baby card for a niece and her husband.  Emery the elephant is always one of my "go to" Verve images for baby cards and this time he got paper pieced.  Because I had so many patterns going on, I opted for a die cut sentiment that was bold. I cut it out in two different colors and offset them a bit for some added interest.  I wasn't planning on sequins, but two tiny ink spots forced me into that option - lol!  I like to take a black Copic marker and run along the edges of my paper pieced images.  I wasn't patient enough to let it dry completely and guessed it...I smeared a bit on the yellow circle. I'm loving a quote I heard recently and it fits so well with this card: A mistake is not a mistake - it's an opportunity for embellishment! :-)
