One Love One Lifetime

Hi friends! It's Monday again and that means it's time for another Mojo Monday sketch challenge. It's also a contest week, so play along for a chance to win a Verve set of your choosing. For my sample card I made an anniversary card for my in-laws who celebrated their 46th anniversary this weekend. I love the clean but trendy feel to this sketch and can see myself using it again and again, especially since it came together so quickly.


We've got a new Verve release coming this Friday, November 11 and on this card I've got a sneaky peek of a much requested new die... the Lovely Marquee die, which coordinates with the frame from Love Story.  Here I've colored the frame with Copics and embossed the One Love One Lifetime sentiment in Cherry Cobbler for a really classy look.  The gorgeous flower is from the Red & Black Mulberry Gardenia Pack from Pizzazz Aplenty and I added a little metal word charm that's been in the stash for a while, inking it lightly with some gold ink to match the shiny gold pearls.

Well, that's all from me today.  Lot's to do to prepare for this week's release.  I'll be back Wednesday through Saturday of this week for some New Release Spotlight Hopping!  Hooray for new stamps and dies!  I hope you'll get a chance this week to play along with the Mojo sketch, and be sure to hop on over to the Mojo Monday blog to see the design team inspirations for the week!
