Grow

It's Monday and time for the next Mojo Monday sketch!  This week's sketch was submitted by Teresa and features twine and ribbon... two of my favorite things!

My card doesn't have much stamping going on.  Actually just a sentiment from a set that will be releasing this weekend from Verve.  The Divas will be starting our spotlight hops tomorrow, so be sure to tune in all week long to see what we've got up our sleeve!


For my card, I went shabby chic and kept piling on the goodies.  I started with a corrugated cardboard flower shape, added some paint and glass glitter, then a ribbon rose made from shabby seam binding and painted on some Tattered Angels glimmer glam and finished with some pink pearls.  I found the grow bingo card in my stash, cut it to fit the sketch, then embossed the bloom and grow sentiment on vellum, sponged on some ink and paint, then stapled together.  The border and the embossed background our Tim Holtz and I added some sponging to age things up a bit.  I finished off with a little metallic dream string and tucked in a few copper skeleton banyan leaves from Pizzazz Aplenty up top.
