Mellow Things

My mojo's back and you're gonna be in trouble hey-la-day-la my mojo's back. LOL! :) Sorry, I just couldn't resist singing a little ditty.
This one's for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #20. The patterned paper is from the BasicGrey Mellow Collection. I used it to paper piece my new Hot Stuff stamp from My Favorite Things. I then masked off the square and overstamped my white panel with Linen background in Close to Cocoa and then sponged around the edges with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip ink. Next I pierced holes around the edges, sanded the edges to make a tiny edge of white show through and matted on Chocolate Chip. I tied some celery and chocolate 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon around the middle of a Certainly Celery card base that had been run through my Cuttlebug with the D'vine Swirls folder. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is matted on Certainly Celery. For the finishing touch, I added a small amount of Diamond Stickles to the steam of her coffee cup.

I also took Jen's advice and swapped the base of yesterday's card to a white one. And what do you know - there was a tiny little bit of mojo hiding under all that Chocolate! LOL While I was at it, I trimmed off the distressed edges that just didn't seem to be working. I think I like it much better now. Thanks Jen! :)
