Mojo Monday is Sweet N Sassy!

Today is mojo Monday and that means Julee has another awesome sketch for us! Here is the sketch and my sample for this week:

I used some fabulous newly released stamps from Sweet N Sassy stamps for today's projects. The scripture is from a new set called Love of a Friend. I embossed my sentiment and showcased it in a circle medallion frame. The edge of the frame is embossed with silver too. You can see instructions how how to make it in Becca's video tutorial which is awesome! They are really pretty simple to make. The only difference in mine is that I use the second largest die and Becca used the largest. I embossed my vellum with my cuttlebug folder to create my bg. I accented my frame with silver pearls and liquid pearls in the scallops.

CS- silver foil, pink shimmer from Wal-Mart, white shimmer PTI
accessories- heart punch, wrought iron corner punch, cb floral fantasy folder, silver pearls, silver e

note: I did try to take a picture of the inside of the card but for some reason it keeps coming out blurry. I will try again later. I used a new sentiment from true friend that I would love to show you.

ETA: I decided to make a matching origami box with a cover

I have another card to show you today. The first card was kind of elaborate and this one is simple and elegant.

I used another newly released set called Love Blooms from Sweet N Sassy stamps. I first stamped my heart rose image in red and then embossed the sentiment over the top of it in black. I framed my image by paper piercing it and using some yummy glittery red ordandy ribbon. The corners of the card were punched with a scallop corner punch and a red sparkle sticker was added.
