Mojo Monday 521

Hi everyone! it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch! Are you ready to play?

As always, you're free to play along with any papercrafting products your heart desires and enter as many creations as you like. Use the sketch as inspiration for your creation, then come link it up below so I can come take a look! The linky for this challenge will close on September 1, 2019. I have included dimensions on the graphic later in this post, but feel free to change them up to suit your needs.

Today is the first day of school at a brand new school for my boys. And their first time riding the bus. I'm super anxious for them. I know they'll do great, but it brings back memories of how mean the kids were on my bus route back in the day. I'm so glad they have each other! Anyhow, back to school always reminds me that falling leaves are just around the corner. So for or today's card, I created a little autumn scene.

I started with some daisy stamps I had left over from creating for the SNSS + My Sweet Petunia Blog Hop. These were done with lemon drop and fruit punch reactive inks with a MISTI. I fussy cut the two images and layered them together, adding a bit of glitter to the flower center.

My background is embossed with an embossing folder I found in the value section of our local craft store last year. I love the little details. I embossed it on white paper and then blended with antique linen distress oxide for a vintage feel.  The sentiment is created using this alpha set. By the way, today's the final day of a fabulous Alpha SALE at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I cut it in a banner shape, then used a little post card ephemera for the rectangle shape.  I finished off by tucking in some glittered leaves and a couple of butterflies I embossed on vellum and colored with Zig markers.

Alrighty, now it's your turn! I hope you enjoy creating with this sketch! Can't wait to see what you create!
