Mojo Monday

 Welcome peeps! The upside of Mondays for me is the Mojo Monday Challenge and I've been a faithful follower for years!  It's a wonderful way to start off my week and hope it is for you as well.  This week, yours truly is bringing you another simple layout that you can dress up or down in a million ways!

I've definitely got spring fever and with Easter around the corner, I
knew I wanted to use this fun basket and chick from Verve's Chicks Rule set.  I layered up a couple of horizontal flags so I could get more patterned papers on the card.  I didn't plan ahead well enough because I didn't leave quite enough room for my original idea to stamp the sentiment on the base layer, so had to go to Plan B and add another vellum banner.  I paper pieced the chick and added some chipboard flowers and pastel sequins (from the Verve store).  I was also inspired by the new Jelly Bean photo for the Curtain Call Inspiration challenge.

For more inspiration, check out the other mojomakers' creations by clicking on their blog links below OR you can go to the Mojo Monday blog and the first 8 thumbnails will be the mojomakers' cards.
