Mojo Monday 275 Contest

Hello, hello!  It’s time for another Mojo Monday contest!  (I’m a little late this week, but that’s not really what counts now is it?)  Here’s this week’s sketch:

Mojo Monday Contest 275

I saw this sketch, looked at a couple of cards done by the design team, and had an apostrophe!  (Hook anyone?)  Here’s what I came up with:


Here’s a slightly closer view for you

First, I stamped the background with VersaMark and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  Then it was a matter of layering all that lovely paper.  I usually only have one border around whatever I’m framing (more like the sentiment), but I love the way 2 borders gives the card more depth and visual interest.  I stamped the sentiment and flourish with Tim Holtz’s peacock feathers distress ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder.  I then proceeded to fussy cut the flourish, layer it on the light brown paper, and fussy cut that out as well.  What’s that you say?  Why don’t I use my handy dandy new Cuttlebug?  That’s a great question!  The simple answer is that I don’t have any dies yet 😛  I’m working on it! Meanwhile, I’ll continue to fussy cut 🙂  As a final touch I added a few blue rhinestones for some sparkle.

What do you think?  Don’t forget to enter the contest yourself!  It ends on Sunday, January 13th, so get crafting!
