Well, my boss had the best time in Israel! I haven’t seen her that excited or passionate ever! She told us all about her trip and how it was the best experience of her life. I was so happy! I keep telling her that there is more to life than work, I think she sees that now. The rest of the day was business as usual and I had a nice relaxing night when I got home. I crafted and then I sped through the American Music Awards on the DVR. Speaking of music has anyone heard Lorde’s version of Everybody Wants to Rule the World from the new Hunger Games Soundtrack? It’s amazing, so haunting and menacing, I love it!
Now for today’s card and the inspiration comes from this week’s Mojo Monday sketch from Julee Tilman…
Round or square… we won’t even talk about that! LOL! My card starts off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock. The background is two pieces of paper from the Winter Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack with a piece of Pool Party across the middle. For the square and the rectangle I used some Island Indigo and Smoky Slate Textured Card Stock both backed with some Silver Foil Sheet. My greeting is from the Very Merry Tags Stamp Set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and backed with some more Island Indigo Textured Card Stock. The image under that is from the Happy Flowers Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Pool Party and cut out with the Floral Frames Collection Framelits Dies. Some Stampin Dimensionals hold it to the card. I think the unexpected floral image with the Cherry Cobbler greeting gives the card a little unexpected pop. Thanks for stopping by to see my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Have yourselves a nice Tuesday! 🙂
