Mojo Monday on Tuesday

Good evening! How's your Tuesday going? So far, my day has been up and down. Work junk. No biggie.

My card is my take on the sketch for Mojo Monday Week 87. When I saw the sketch, I thought, "Oh, wow! There's an inchie element on this card!" As you can see, however, I didn't use one. My obsession was obviously short-lived. LOL. I don't know what to say about this card with the exception that I'm really happy with it. The sentiment and Creme Brule flower were mounted with foam mounting tape. The little pearls in the centers of the Petal flowers are kind of hard to distinguish in the photo. Otherwise, what you see is what you get. The sketch is one that I'm going to save, because I think it might be a good one to use for a monogram card, too.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White and Olive cardstock; Bella paper packet; Creme Brule, Chocolate, Olive, Petal, Smokey Plum, and Bamboo ink pads; Endless Friendship and Verve Stamps Serenity stamp sets; Ecru crochet lace from Wal-Mart; Kaiser Krafts pearl accents; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; Sponge dauber; Glue Dots; 3M foam mounting tape.

After a rather hectic day, I'm looking forward to a quiet evening. American Idol. A little stamping. An early bedtime. Tomorrow night, I'll tell you about Bjorn's preschool graduation program. Maybe I'll have a photo, too. Undoubtedly, it will be a "proud grandma" moment. I hope your evening is a good one. Thanks for stopping by!
