Thursday! I know, I do the countdown starting on Wednesday every week almost. Some weeks I’m just more ready for the weekend than others. I’m especially looking forward to this afternoon when my Box ‘O New Stampin’ Goodies arrives! It is going to be a long day! LOL! They said rain yesterday but it didn’t start until after midnight so it was another nice day here. A bit more humid but still sunny and we are supposed to have a nice weekend too! I will get into Manhattan this weekend! I hope! I went and spoke to my neighbor after work for a bit, come home and made a card and managed to run to Target. A pretty productive evening, those are always the best aren’t they?!
My post for today is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This week’s sketch is provided by Julee Tilman…
This card went through many changes on it’s way to what it finally became! Sometimes that happens, right?! The base is Basic Black Card Stock. My background is a piece of Lost Lagoon on the left that I embossed with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and a strip of adhesive cork sheet on the right. The center panel is a piece of Modern Medley Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Basic Black. Across the bottom is a piece of 7/8″ Cotton Ribbon that I flagged the right side of. I used some Fast Fuse Adhesive to adhere it to the panel. The greeting is from the Label Love Stamp Set and is stamped in Lost Lagoon and punched out with the Artisan Label Punch. I cut out another piece of adhesive cork sheet with the Circles Collection Framelits and backed it with a piece of Crumb Cake. The label and circle are adhered together with Fast Fuse too. Finally I punched out some stars with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack from Lost Lagoon and adhered then to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think that the Lost Lagoon and the cork give the card a vintage feel and that this would make a great masculine birthday card! And there you have my card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch challenge. I really hope that you enjoyed the card, I want to thank you for coming by and I hope that you all have a terrific Thursday! Oh, don’t forget to come back tomorrow to see who wins the blog candy! 🙂
