Mojo 344

Posted on

It was another beautiful day here in New York! Finally, we are getting the spring-like weather that we have waited so long for! We are supposed to get some rain tonight and tomorrow morning, but then the sun will be out again. Work was quiet again today, just how I like it. I stopped by last night and met Heather and we took the munchkins out shopping and then went back and hung out with Kim for a little while. And the evening was finished off with a visit from my favorite singer, Andrew. Pretty good day, wouldn’t you say?

The post that I have for you today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Julee Tilman has provided us with an unusual sketch…

Mojo344

I stayed very true to this sketch, I even used a grid on my background! The base of the card is Night of Navy Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Etcetera Designer Series Paper Pack. My diamond shape is a piece of Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock that I embossed with the “Vintage” Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The tag is created with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and is stamped in Night of Navy with the steamship from the Traveler Stamp Set*. A piece of Crumb Cake Baker’s Twine is tied in a bow through the top of the tag. The stamp on the flag is a very “Vintage” one and it is from the Travel Log Stamp Set and is also stamped in Night of Navy. I slipped a toothpick behind the tag and flag that are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love all the detail in the ship image and I thought the “Adventure” stamp, even though it’s really old, went well with it. I hope you enjoyed my “Vintage” card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope your Thursday is a great one! 🙂
