...Viva La Mojo

This is my submission for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #107. I used the wreath from the new Verve set "Harvest Blessings" on the focal panel, then created my own patterned paper with the bough from the same set. I added some paper piercing, sponging, and Silver Brads to complete the card. I LOVE the way this turned out!

This bright creation is my submission for Friday's Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge with a twist of color...we could use orange or brown. When I took the picture of my card and went to edit it, I noticed that there were orange stripes in the Penny Lane patterned paper...OOPS! Sorry about that, Amber...I hope this still counts! LOL! The stars and sentiment were from the new Verve set "Starstruck", and the only embellishments used were Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon and Silver Brads.

Holy always blow me away. Gorgeous! I noticed JUST before I glued my VLV card together that one panel had orange, so I was able to change it out. LOL! Funny how that happens. Awesome job, Mercy!
