Mojo Monday Revisited




I loved this Mojo sketch so much I decided to make the square version as well!   I can see them becoming some go to sketches for me.

I started out with this Provo Craft DP and just had to use my new Verve flowers and dies on it.  Love the last Verve release as there are lots of great Vervalicous flowers - happy sigh.... :)   The best part is there are coordinating dies for the flowers and the large leaf image - double happy sigh :)

This card has very little stamping but lots of dies and punches.  The flower is a combination of So Saffron and More Mustard and I used Versamark on celery card stock for the leaves.  It is so nice not having to hand cut those leaves - thank you Julee!!   Fiddled with what to put where the ribbon is on the sketch because the sentiment  panel threw things off a bit.  Believe it or not, my hubby is the one that suggested a butterfly in lieu of the ribbon and he is  now quite proud of himself  :)  Had to giggle about it because he said if anyone comments on how nice the butterfly looks he had better get the credit - thus credit is being given in advance LOL!

Thanks so much for popping by today :)
