Welcome to another week! This week, Mary Fish is filling in for me at the Mojo sketchboard. Head on over to the Mojo Monday blog to check out her sketch (Mojo179) and some fabulous samples from the design team.
For my mojo card, I wanted to use some rolled flowers. The Sizzix 3D Flowers die is the only one I currently have, so that's where I started. I've seen a lot of people making little nests with them, so I decided to turn on the shabby and added some hemp twine, pearls and some diecut leaves painted with liquid pearls. I stamped the circle frame from Happy Hello, punched it out and layered onto some petite scallop circles cut with the Stella & Rose Hattie papers. Actually all the papers are from that collection and I matted with basic gray cardstock. The sentiment is also from the Happy Hello set and I used it with the Sentiment Flags die from Lil inkers. I distressed lots of edges, inking with Pumice Stone and Scattered Straw distress inks, then layered on a bit of lace and finished with some pearl accents.

This blog is for personal inspiration only and all projects are my original designs unless otherwise stated. I own Verve Stamps and have received products and materials to work with from several generous companies over the years. While I have received free products from these companies, I maintain the freedom as an independent designer to say what I truly think of their products. I will never recommend something that I don’t personally use and enjoy.
