Mojo 309

Posted on

Ahh… Tuesday already! How was your three day weekend? Mine went exceptionally quickly but I guess that’s because I had a lot going on which is a good thing. Yesterday I spent a lot of time at the craft desk, it was dreary and muggy here almost all day. I got some projects finished, started some new ones and just played for a bit. I did make the mistake of venturing out to BJ’s at one point and it was a mad house. My friend Sandy said that Staples was the same. That’s because everyone just remembered that school starts tomorrow! LOL! Last minute is always the worst idea but we are all guilty of it. This week will be a good week, mainly because it’s a four day week! Woo hoo! 🙂

Today I have my Mojo Monday sketch card for you. The sketch we have this week is provided by Julee Tilman…

My card starts off with a base of Basic Black Card Stock. The background is the “Vintage” Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions Embossing folder from last year’s Holiday Catalog in Pumpkin Pie. I thought that it went really well with the Witches’ Brew Designer Series Paper that I used on both of the panels. Each of them are backed with some Basic Gray and adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Tags 4 You Stamp Set and is punched out with the Bracket Label Punch. A piece of Basic Black that I flagged on both ends goes behind it. A Pumpkin Pie Brights Designer Button with a Basic Glimmer Brad in the center completes the card. So what do you think, doesn’t the Lacy Brocade Folder look neat with the DSP?! I wish they would never retire the embossing folders, you can never have too many of them! Thanks for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch challenge. Enjoy the start of your four day week! 🙂

  1. Great card! The Lacy Brocade EF does work well with the current DSP, and it adds a lovely texture to the background of this card. A great balance of colors. Hope your Monday…er…Tuesday is great!
