Mojo Monday... (on Tuesday)


Well, I am trying to get back into the swing of things here and one challenge that always gets my creative juices flowing is a good sketch!  I stopped over at Mojo Monday and this week's sketch - MOJO222 - was just what I needed!


I started by selecting a few different designer papers from the Basic Grey - Nook & Pantry collection.  I then cut out all of my shapes and started piecing everything together.  I then went digging for some embellishments and found a piece of old doily, some vintage buttons and a flower that I built in the past but never used (it seemed to match so I went with it LOL!).  Lastly, on another pattern of designer paper, I stamped "just because I care" from the Stampin' Up! set Best Yet, punched out and popped it on!  All layers were sponged with Stampin' Up! Early Espresso.

This sketch really was a challenge!  If you have time this week, head on over to Mojo Monday and give it a whirl!

best!
