Mojo Monday Week #52

Happy Monday Everyone! I can't believe it's already time for another Mojo Monday sketch. This week's sketch is actually based on this card I made a few weeks ago. I liked the layout and wanted to give it another go, so I made it the sketch for this week. I hope you have fun with it!

To play along, just make a card using the provided sketch and leave a comment on this post with a link to a photo of your creation. There is no time limit - you can play any week at any time. If you happen to upload to SCS, please use keyword Mojo52 so we can see everyone's mojoliciousness all in one happy place.

It's also release week for Verve, and so today the Divas are previewing two of our new sets, Abundant Blessings and So Happy over on the Verve Blog. (Pssst - There's a prize - so you probably want to check it out!) These sets will be available on Wednesday, September 10.

I combined the two sets they're previewing today for my mojo sample this week and started by stamping the cattails image from Abundant Blessings on white cardstock three times in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I then brayered the entire piece with Soft Sky ink for a nice background, and then used my white Signo gel pen to highlight each of the cattails for a frosty look. The two patterned papers are from the BasicGrey Offbeat paper collection. The sentiment is made up of two stamps from the So Happy set and stamped on a petite Nestibilities oval. Next I added a jumbo eyelet, wrapped the 1/4" chocolate chip grosgrain around the card and through the eyelet and tied in a little bow. I finished off with a little Stardust Stickles on the image for sparkle.

Okay, that's all for today folks. You've still got until noon today to get your Mojo entries in for last week's contest. Winners and the slide show of contest entries will be announced tomorrow. And don't miss out on the OSW challenge in the Verve forum where you can win the ENTIRE september release for participating.
