Mojo Monday Sketch

Another “Sketch Card” for today. This one is for Julee Tilman’s “Mojo Monday” sketch. You can see the sketch here. This one was really fun to do, too! Sketches are great for me, because they challenge me to use more layers.

I started with Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin’ Up! I rounded the corners – as per the sketch! The patterned paper I used on this card is from Die Cuts With a View Nana’s Nursery – Boy stack. Gosh, those papers are so cool! The bottom is Buckaroo Blue, run through my BIGkick in a Dotted Swiss embossing folder. The ribbon is SU! Certainly Celery. I used a retired SU! set called “All Occasions” for the flowers and the sentiment. I stamped it on watercolor paper using Memories black ink, then colored it with SU! markers and ink pads. I cut the image and the scalloped mat (Certainly Celery) with oval Nestabilities. A couple little details that you could overlook – I colored the daisies with a white gel pen, I used seed beads for the daisy centers, and I used glitter on the blue flowers.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
