Mojo Monday #304

It's round or square week and though I usually make a round card, this time round (no pun intended LOL) I decided to go with the square sketch.

Love orange and green together and MME's The Sweetest Thing had a fabulous choice of papers to work from.  Kraft became my neutral along with the white and the yummy, yellow seam binding is from Verve's Spring Fling ribbon package.  The bling in the center of the bow was from a find at a local dollar store (oh how I love dollar store finds!).

I needed to balance off the bow a bit so I jumped at the chance to use my beloved Flutterby die from Verve.  The card also qualifies for one of today's Dare To Get Dirty Challenges which you can find here over on Splitcoast Stampers.  You have to be a Fan Club member to play along, so if you aren't, now is a good chance to become one and help support the fabulous world of SCS :)

You can check out all the challenge details over on the Mojo Monday blog and also get a chance to view all the wonderful Mojo Makers samples.  Should you wish more details on the Mojo Maker's cards, you can also visit their individual blogs noted below.

Think we will take a few trips to the beach this week as the weather continues to be outstanding and by now the kids should be able to brave the water (was too cold on the July long weekend) while I enjoy catching some rays and reading on the beach :)  Have a fabulous week and hope you can squeeze in some time to play along!

Such a pretty card Marisa. I love the colours you've used and I'm always happy to see your crimped flutterby making an appearance. Love the yellow seam binding bow. Enjoy your beach time....reading and tanning.

So beautiful Marisa! I love how you've tied the ribbon - how do you do that?! Is there a tutorial anywhere?

Mum's op went well and she was laughing and joking when I saw her earlier. What a relief! Thank you for your prayers and positive thoughts.
