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!
