Mojo Monday Week 71

It is Monday and that means it is time for another awesome Mojo Monday sketch brought to us by Julee Tilman.

Here is the sketch and my sample:

I must admit that my mojo was not quite where I wanted it this time LOL. I had a bit of trouble not because the sketch was difficult but because everything I was trying to do would just not cooperate. I made wrong cuts, had trouble with the sponging and numerous other mishaps so it was not my day really. It took me a very long time to complete this card between my mistakes and my ankle. I had to stop and start so I could elevate it between goof ups LOL. So, the card is not too bad.

I pulled out some of my absolute favorite papers for this card- basic grey bittersweet dp (available at Sweet N Sassy stamps) and my all time favorite cardstock- cryogen white. I stamped my sentiment and sponged around it while it was still in my nestie die. I added crystal effects to the two small hearts. I stamped my hearts, painted them with pink poinsettia blingz shimmerz, cut them out and adhered to the square with pop dots. I used my scallop corner punch on the 4 corners and accented each with a pearl.

In the close up you can see how pretty and shimmery the cryogen white iridescent cardstock is. Isn't it yummy? I have been hoarding it because I only had a few sheets left and did not know where I could get it at a reasonable price. Well, now I know! The Paper Temptress has this and lots of other gorgeous specialty papers!

stamps- Verve stamps Sweet Valentine
CS- cryogen white, basic grey bittersweet dp
accessories- pink poinsettia blingz, taffeta ribbon, marvy scallop corner punch, pink pearls, labels one nesties, crystal effects, paper piercer

Don't forget to stop by the mojo Monday blog for more challenge details and to check out the other samples from the mojo makers.

There is a new challenge posted on the Sweet N Sassy blog today so check it out if you have time. I had wanted to have a sample to show you for that but things did not go how I planned them.

A new high hopes challenge with blog candy drawing started yesterday and you have until Saturday to complete the challenge for a chance to win some stamps.

Have a nice day!
