Mojo Monday

 Good Monday everyone! Hope you're ready for another month of fabulous sketches for the Mojo Monday Challenge, because Julee has some great ones lined up!  I'm a bit jet lagged from a beach vacation last week, but found some reserve mojo for this birthday card!  I gold embossed some leaves from Verve's Bloom and Grow stamp set, then die cut with the Elegant Leaves die.  The vellum leaves were cut using Verve's Sprightly Sprigs die set.  The flower was stamped twice with black ink on some of the matching designer paper, embossed with clear EP, then fussy cut and popped with a foam dot.  A black pearl was added to the center.

For more inspiration, you'll want to visit the other mojomakers' blogs can go to the Mojo Monday blog and check out the first 7 thumbnails.'s contest week and you could win some new Verve if you play along!

STAMPS: Bloom and Grow (leaves), Button Bits (flower), Better Together (sentiment) - all by Verve.
PAPER: Time Traveler's Memories by Prima, Vintage Cream by PTI, Always Artichoke by SU, Vellum.
INK: Versamark, Black Licorice hybrid ink by MFT.
ACCESSORIES: Gold sequins by Avery Elle, Border Die-Namics by MFT, Corner chomper, Elegant Leaves and Sprightly Sprigs dies by Verve, Black pearl, Clear embossing powder, Glossy Accents to adhere the sequins to the card.

Hope to see you in the gallery!
