Mojo Monday Week #44

Happy Monday Everyone! I've got exciting stuff going on this week, and I'm kicking it off with a mojo sketch for y'all. I've added an optional layer to this week's sketch for those that want it. You can do it with or without or both, depending on your mood. Okay, here's the drill... just make a card using the sketch as inspiration and then leave a comment on this post with a link to a photo of your creation. There is no time limit - you can play any week at any time, but to be included in the slideshow next Monday, I need your link by Sunday at 8 PM Mountain time (6 PM ET). If you happen to upload to SCS, please use keyword Mojo44 so we can see everyone's mojoliciousness all in one happy place.

For my sample card, I used the optional layer as an embossed frame using the largest Rectangle in the Classic Rectangles Nestabilities collection directly on my background layer. The patterned paper for the horizontal strip is from the Hello Sunshine Cosmo Cricket collection, and was my color inspiration for the card. I didn't really have any colors that exactly matched, so I went with a classic black, cream and a splash of color look. The image panel is embossed and cut with Nestabilities and then I stamped one of the large filigrees from Filigree Fantasy and layered a flower and flower center from Petals & Stems over it, popping each layer up on a dimensional. The sentiment is from the Feeling Groovy set and is punched out with a 1.25" circle punch and matted with a 1 3/8" circle punch. To finish I added two photo corner punches, some black grosgrain ribbon and a bunch of Tiny Twinkles from Taylored Expressions.

Be sure to checkout the 63 mojolicious entries from last week in the slideshow below!

  25. Great sketch again Julee! My card strayed a bit as I didn't have access to my computer when doing the finishing touches. My rectangle panel is a bit small and the circle sentiment is a bit to the right. Oh well, still works!!
