Mojo Monday Sketch #103


I love Monday's because they bring a new Mojo Sketch. In addition, since this is the first Monday of the month, there is a chance of winning some Verve Stamps of your card is selected!! So, I'm trying again :D

I just love the Pocket Silhouette set as well as Sage Shadow, Chocolate Chip and cream together so this was a fun card to be able to put together. I found this fun ribbon at Mike's and since it was chocolate and the silhouette stamp has "dots" on the tops of the flowers I decided to go with this combo. I added the Swiss Dots embossing afterwards and am not sure I'm sold on it, but it does give some dimension so it will have to do for now. I tried adding a sentiment to the image panel but it just didn't work too well with the silhouette stems so I left the main image blank.

My original concept was quite different than what I ended up with so if time permits, I may make another card based on my original concept for this sketch. Think it may be a good way to celebrate my free time the first day the kids go back to school before many other things start filling that time.

Trust you had a wonderful Labour Day weekend. Thank you so much for stopping by and let me know when you have :D
