Mojo Poppies

Hi friends!  It's time for another Mojo Monday sketch, and since it's the first Monday of the month, that means it's CONTEST time!  So play along with our Mojo 314 sketch and link it up for a chance to win a free stamp set from Verve!  We add a winner for every 50 entries, so play as often as you like!



My card for today was so much fun to make!  I just love working with book paper and these poppies and coordinating dies are just so fun!  I cut two sets of book paper flowers with the Build a Poppy Die Set and also cut four sets of the leaves from old olive.  I then stamped the outlined flowers from Poppy Birthday on each book paper die cut, then stamped the solid flowers over the top of that in blushing bride.  The banner is cut with the Banner Bundle Die Set and I used the leaf and flower centers stamps as a little tone on tone background for the banner.  Next I stamped the outlined flowers in blushing bride on the book paper circle layer and on the cream layer cut with the Mini Classy Label Die Set.  Some black mats, Pastel Sequins, Spring Fling ribbon and a mini library clip finish off my embellishments.  The blushing bride layer is embossed with the Chicken Wire embossing folder (just love the look of that one!)

This week's Mojo sketch was based on this fun little card I made for Verve's latest release.

That's the wrap-up for the card.  If you missed my World Card Making Day Diva Inspirations Hop post, there's still time to hop about for a chance to win Verve's ENTIRE September release!  And today's the final day of Verve's World Card Making Day Sale!
 
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a fabulously creative week!
