Anniversary Mojo

Hi friends! It's Monday again already and time for another Mojo Monday sketch. This week's sketch was designed by Sarah Bigelow.

I didn't have a lot of time to make my card, due to abridged napping by the boys, so I kept it pretty simple. The papers are all from the Park Bench collection. I cut the polka dot strips down first, then added a 3.5" square rounding two corners of the grey striped paper. This is matted with black. The flower is from Surely Goodness and I stamped the large and medium directly onto patterned paper, then hand cut and layered with a brad. The leaves are from Dream Big and stamped in white jasmine black cardstock and cut with the coordinating Dreamy Leaves Die Set. I did flip the sketch so that I could use the new Happy Anniversary Plain Jane as my sentiment. The whites on the two papers didn't match, even though they came from the same paper pack (a total pet peeve of mine), so I went over the polka dots with liquid pearls. Then I had to add a bit of sparkle to the flower with stardust stickles and finish off with a bit of glossy accents on the leaves. The seam binding bow is from the Signature Ribbon Collection.

That's all for me.  If you haven't had a chance to hop along the April Diva Inspirations Hop yet, click here! I hope you have a great start to you week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
