Be Strong

Hi friends!  It's the final Monday of the month and that means it's time for a round or square sketch over on the Mojo Monday blog.  This week's another CAS inspired layout that can be dressed up or down to your heart's content.


For my card I pulled out the newly released Each Day set and went with the square version of the sketch. The butterfly from the set is embossed with white onto black cardstock and then hand trimmed and glued down onto some ruffled ribbon strips using the brand new Autumn Elements Ribbon Collection  seam binding.  I embossed just a portion of the crumb cake panel with a hearts embossing folder for a little interest, then stamped the Psalm 31:24 and the little heart (both from Each Day) in the non-embossed section and colored the heart with a Copic marker.

I added a little flair with a single rounded corner and a wavy edge punch for the bottom of the card.  Easy peasy and done during a VERY short nap time!  {grin}


All of the new releases from Verve, including Each Day, are 10% off right now, or the September Stamp Collection and the Accessories Pack are marked 20% off!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'm scheduled for shipping duties, so I'll be glitterfied from packing orders in sparkly tissue paper today!  {grin}  Hope you have a fantastic start to your week!
