A Mojo Monday Sketch

This is my take on Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch #61 and yet another card made with the Abundant Blessings set and Basic Grey Boxer paper. I love the colors, the flowers, the base. Looking at my card, I don't know that there's a lot to say. The vase was paper pieced and the floral stamp was inked with markers. I used my blending pen and a little Chocolate ink to "ground" my vase. The stamped images were distressed with a sponge and Bamboo ink.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Outdoor Denim, and Barn Red cardstock; Basic Grey Boxer 6x6-inch paper pad; New England Ivy, Outdoor Denim, Chocolate, and Bamboo ink pads; New England Ivy and Vineyard Berry markers; Verve Stamps Abundant Blessings and Thoughtful Florals stamp sets; New England Ivy Designer Ribbon Rounds (retired); Pewter mini brads; EK Success Corner Rounder; Stampin' Up Word Window punch; Round sponge; Sanding block.

I'm on my own again tonight. The hunt continues. I plan to stay in and stay warm. While the calendar isn't in agreement, I believe winter has arrived in Minnesota. After I straighten up my corner a bit, I'm going to mess it up again, so I have something to show you tomorrow night when I get home from bowling. Until then, take care, and thanks for stopping by!

Wow! You sure know how to work your way around a challenge! Love the colors in this paper, although quite honestly, I might have passed it up as not being "my style." Your eye is terrific for this type of stuff!
