Be Mine Sampler

Hi friends!  It's time for another Mojo Monday sketch, and this week we're getting a little blocky.  Every once in a while I find it fun and a good creative challenge to work with several smaller spaces on one card, like a sampler.  So that's what this week's Mojo 225 sketch is all about.


For my sample card, I started with the Love Me papers by My Mind's Eye and pulled out the new Twitterpated set from Verve.  I wanted a shabby feel, so I distressed my layers and added some hand drawn framing and doodling in at the end with a basic gray marker.  The sentiments and trio of hearts are from the Twitterpated set, and I added some layered From the Heart die cuts in the top corner.  A metal heart and a valentine ticket from my stash, finished off the other corners and I was ready to add a little ribbon and and embossed base to finish things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous start to your week.  If you've got a little time, be sure to head on over to the Mojo Monday blog to check out what the rest of the design team did with the sketch, then play along for a little creative fun!

Your lovely card took the "block" out of "blocky." It looks like it all blends together so well. I especially like the heart embellishments and how well selected your color scheme.
