Skinny Heart

Hi friends!  It's Monday again, and in 2014 I decided to change up the Round and Square feature on the last Mojo Monday sketch of the month to Tall & Skinny.  There are lots of options for measurements in making long cards, but this week's sketch was designed with a 3.5" x 5.5" card base in mind so I could hang something off the edge and still fit it in an A2 envelope.  Feel free to adapt the sketch to whatever length/width fits your fancy, though!



I enjoyed the sketch so much that I made a second one flipped horizontally which you'll see later in the week.  But today's card uses the Proverbs 16:9 scripture from Scripture Medley 3, a bunch of embossing folders and a fun little heart embellishment.  The heart is simply 3 of the same size heart cut with the Heart Quartet Die, layered with thick glue dots in between each, then sponged with a bit of espresso ink.  I love how it turned out.  I've also had this dark chocolate burlap ribbon sitting on my desk forever just waiting for a chance to use it, so I used it for both the horizontal and vertical strips in the sketch.  I also turned the rectangle panel into a little banner for a bit of fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'm still hanging on to my cough and getting very little sleep, but yesterday was the first day I could hear in my right ear all month!  So I think there's hope that I can leave this sickness behind in January and start February fresh and healthy.  At least that's my great wish!  Hope your week starts out healthy and filled with creativity!
