...Mojo #79

This is my submission for Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday Sketch #79 from her MojoMonday Sketch Blog. I started with a Kiwi Kiss Cardstock base, then matted each additional layer with a combination of Basic Black Cardstock and/or Kiwi Kiss Cardstock. The large Whisper White Cardstock panel and focal panel were each pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. The patterned paper was from the Bella Rose Designer Series Paper pack, and the scallop on the bottom of the panel was created with the Eyelet Border Punch. Three Silver Brads were matted with cardstock circles that were created with the 1/2" Circle Punch and the 1/4" Circle Punch. Each layer was attached to the card base using Dimensionals.

The flower image was from the Level Two Hostess set called "Echoes of Kindness", and was stamped in Basic Black Craft Ink before being embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. I colored the bloom with a Blender Pen and the following Classic Ink Pads: Kiwi Kiss, Only Orange, and Pumpkin Pie. A piece of 5/8" Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon was added to the card to finish it off.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all again tomorrow with some other challenge cards/projects. Until then...
