Be Mine

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch!  This week's sketch is by Teresa and has some nice clean lines that make for a super easy card.  I was feeling a bit off kilter from my inner + outer ear infection, so I decided to skew a couple panels in honor of the dizziness that seems to be hanging on.  {wink}


This month's Diva Dare is Smitten and the challenge is to add a heart and a Verve product to your card.  For my card, I pulled out an old favorite of mine, Heart's Desire and went with a just paper & ink approach (no pattern paper).  I really love stamped backgrounds, so I used the big heart on the red layer and the small heart clusters on the strawberry layer.  I've been seeing some masked circles lately, so decided to mask off a circle and stamp the LOVE sentiment in it, then stamp the double heart arrows over the top.  A little sentiment flag is a cozy home for the be mine sentiment and I used the Heart Quartet Die for my layered heart.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fabulous start to your week.  If you're in the mood for some new stamps, Verve has love-themed stamps & dies 30% off right now!

Fabulous backgrounds and love the masked sentiment idea! Love that you skewed some panels in "honor" of your recent and sounds like still lingering illness. :-) Mamas ain't got time for dat!
