Good Monday everyone! It's a time to celebrate an awesome milestone as the Mojo Monday Challenge reaches its 500th sketch! Now, that's a whole lotta sketches folks! My card sentiment HAD to be a thank you for Julee's many years of perseverence at bringing us fabulous layouts week after week! There is much behind the scenes work to keep a challenge going which leads into the next sad note. This is the last Mojo Monday challenge (insert sad face here)! You'll want to head to the Mojo blog post HERE for Julee's explanation. You will have an extra week to play along with this last challenge, so we hope to see you one more time in the gallery!
So...let's get on with what is happening on my card - lol!
I loved the watermelon feel of these patterned papers from Pebbles' Fun in the Sun 6x6 pad and used that as a starting point. I chose black and white elements with a pop of the bright yellow for the flowers. Here is what I used:
STAMPS: Be Blessed (flowers), Treasured Words (sentiment), Bloom and Grow (leaves) - all by Verve.
PAPER: True Black (PTI), White (Neenah Solar White), Fun in the Sun 6x6 pad by Pebbles.
INK: Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark, Lucky Limeade (SU).
DIES: Rounded Scallop Frame, Elegant Leaves and Petal Points by Verve; Stitched Strips by Lil' Inker Designs; Edge Essentials by Reverse Confetti.
Out of curiosity, I searched Splitcoaststampers to see when I first starting playing along with the Mojo Monday challenge and it looks like Mojo97 on 7/27/2009 was my first entry. Check it out below...oh my...what was I thinking with the dark background for the photo - lol?!
