Mojo Monday

And...we're off and running to the next 400 sketches by bringing you Mojo Monday sketch challenge #401.  If you've gotten a chance to see the new SU catalog, you may have seen their new Bohemian designer paper...LOVE the combination of Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Island Indigo, Rich Razzleberry and Delightful Dijon! 

I wanted to recreate that Bohemian feel by using a variety of circle medallion images from Verve's Peaceful Medallions set.  I don't have the new SU inks yet, so I subbed Crushed Curry.  The grid patterned paper is from SU's Moonlight stack of papers.  I fussy cut the flowers (Be Blessed - Verve) and stamped the sentiment (Moments Remembered - Verve) in Blackberry Bliss.  I used Verve's Sprightly Sprigs dies to cut leaves from Bermuda Bay CS.  I looped some gold cording and tucked the loops underneath using glue dots.  The grosgrain ribbon and button are also from SU.  

Check out the rest of the mojomakers' creations by clicking on their blog links below...or... you can go to the Mojo Monday blog and the first 7 thumbnails will be the design team's cards.

On a side note, I'm the oldest in my family with two younger brothers and today is my next youngest brother's birthday where he's celebrating the big 6-0!  I don't get to see him very often (he lives in northeastern Ohio near our home town) but wanted to give him a shout out!  He's quite the talented guy with singing, playing guitar, being worship leader at their church; he also has some great woodworking and artistic skills and is the comedian in our family!  Happy birthday, Lowell!
