Hi There!

Hi there, friends!  It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  This week is a round or square option, which are my personal favorite shape of cards to make. For this sketch, I went with the round option, since during my reorganizing for the move, I reclaimed my Grand Nestabilities which had fallen behind a bookshelf.

Actually, most everything on this card was reclaimed while re-organizing.  It's amazing the treasures you find when you take the time to look through everything.  First off the papers are from the La Creme stack by DCWV and were tucked away in the closet with a bunch of other 8x8 pads.  The label shape dies and the ribbon were purchased on my trip to Missoula and I've been so busy since then they just got stuffed in the closet and never put away.  And the hearts were cut with the From the Heart Die Set for a different project a few months ago and I rediscovered them in the "save for later" pile this weekend.  They seemed like the perfect splash of red to accent the card.

The stamping here uses a sentiment and flourish accent from the Fabulous You set.  I stamped them in black, using the flourishes on opposing corners and lightly sponged the edges of the label with Antique Linen to not look so stark against the creme dp.  My last little "find" was a Viva decor black pearl pen that had fallen behind my desk, still in it's packaging.  I've been wanting black liquid pearls forever and totally forgot about this purchase.  So I added a little "pearl" to each scallop on my card base and called it done.  {grin}

Okay, that's all from me today!  Be sure to check out what the rest of the Mojo team did with this sketch.  And if you're wanting a little something new to inspire you, Verve's Black Friday sale has been extended through today!  Hooray!  One more day of huge savings on 60+ stamps and sets!
