Mojo and a Diva Inspirations Hop!

Hi friends!  It's Monday, and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  I'm technically on hiatus, as Teresa is filling in for me over the next couple of months by posting the sketches, but I did find a little time to make a card for this week's sketch.  And it's a two-fer, since today is also the 5th of the month and that means the Inspiration Divas are putting on a Verve-alicious hop!  Be sure to check out all the details below!


I started this card with this little sketch in my head, wanting to use the Psalm 63:3-4 Plain Jane.  I stamped the verse onto a Tagged Rectangle die cut, then matted with the Rounded Scallop Frame die cut in crumb cake, adding some sponging and liquid pearls.  The flowers are stamped with the blooms from Hope Blooms, then cut with the Floral Circles Die Set and then hand cut along the lines of the blooms to make them fringe-y.  The leaves are stamped with the Making a Statement leaves and cut out with the Loopy Blooms dies.  I layered it all together and topped with a Twitterpated button from SU!  i used the same pack of buttons, threaded on a length of linen thread across my panel and finished off with some baja breeze seam binding ribbon.


If you're here for the hop, you should have landed here from Jen Tapler's blog.  If not, be sure to start from the beginning and read up on all the prize info (yep, there's a $25 Verve gift certificate up for grabs to a lucky commenter along the hop) and see the hoplist over on the Verve blog!  Next up on the hop is ...  LYNDA!

Stamps: Psalm 63:3-4 Plain Jane, Hope Blooms, Making a Statement (Verve)
Paper: Be Happy, Be Amazing (My Mind's Eye), Crumb Cake, Pear Pizazz (SU!)

Girl, I can't believe you are still creating such gorgeousness. But I guess all you have to do for the next couple weeks is wait for those babies to come. Then life will be crazy! (but good) Your card is beautiful, as always. Love that seam binding and your fringy flowers.
