...Bloom & Grow Mojo

This is my submission for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #102. I stamped one of the sentiments from the Verve set Just For You in white craft ink, then embossed it with white embossing powder on baja cardstock. The patterned papers were from the Bloom & Grow patterned paper pack from The Paper Studio. The edges of the striped panel were pierced with a paper piercer and piercing guide. The circle focal panels were created using my Big Shot and Spellbinders' Classic Circle Nestablilities. I added silver brads, baja ribbon, and a celery button with linen thread to finish off the card.

That's it for today! My oldest son has his first JV football game of the season, and I am helping feed the whole team after school...so I have to get all of my housework finished before leaving. I would love to stamp all day, but it doesn't look like that will happen today! LOL! Don't forget to stop by Verve to get a 10% discount on your order when you use the discount code MercyRocks. Thanks for stopping by, and I will see you again tomorrow! Until then...

I am so addicted to that paper, I made myself put it away because EVERY card I was making was from that pad. It is so yummy, I really should get it out again :)

Beautiful job with Julee's sketch!
