Mojo Monday #362

 photo Mojo363pic.jpg

It's Monday and that means it's time for a Mojo Monday sketch - yeah! 

I was in the mood for another leaf card and lots of texture so I actually delved into the world of embossing paste.  Used a chevron stencil, added the paste and then let it dry.  Used a mix of fall colours and of course, my leaf dies wink, wink.  The maple leaf is die cut from a Starbuck's sleeve - love the olive colour and the writing on it added a little something.   I also embossed the sahara sand panel with my wood grain embossing folder for even more texture.  Replaced the ribbon with my die cut "thankful" and completed the card by adding the secondary sentiment.

All the challenge details are over on the Mojo Monday blog and you can also 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.  


Entering this into the Just Us Girls "leaves" word challenge, the NBUS challenge (new stencil and embossing paste) and The Paper Players Fall Theme.  Think I'll save this card to give to hubby from the kids and I at Thanksgiving as we are truly thankful for the wonderful father and husband he is - not to mention great cook!
