Hi friends! It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time for a Mojo Monday contest! Verve is sponsoring prizes, so be sure to schedule a little creative break sometime this week to play along. Today's sketch comes from the mind of the one and only Carole Burrage.
I thought this layout would work perfectly for something simple, sweet and mailable, so that was my goal for the card. And I think I actually accomplished it! Woohoo! I've noticed that a lot of clean and simple stampers will take a layered sketch and use the stamps as layers to keep things simple, so that's what I tried with the snowflakes from Holiday Greetings. The sentiment is also from the Holiday Greetings set and I added some thin black mats and tied in the pool party with a little tone on tone stamped border below. A border punch, some ribbon and liquid pearl accents and the card was done. Easy peasy!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you have a fabulous first week of December!

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.
