...Mojo Contest Card

This is my submission for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch #81 Contest. I have to admit...this sketch has been kicking my booty all week! LOL! I have fought with every layer for days, but I am so happy with the way it turned out. I started with a Kiwi Kiss Cardstock base, then matted each additional layer with Basic Black Cardstock. All of the patterned papers were from the Rockabilly Specialty Designer Series Paper pack, and the images were from the retired SU set "Ahoy Matey". The embellishments included Silver Brads and a piece of 5/8" Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon. I matted the brads with kiwi cardstock that had been punched out using the 1/4" Circle Punch, and I also frayed the ends of the ribbon. The sentiment panel was punched out using the following: 1" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you all tomorrow with something...I'm just not sure what yet! LOL! Until then...
