Mojo Monday 249

Today I am participating in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for the first time.  I really loved the sketch and used it to create a card for my sister.   Mollie, if you are reading this, turn back NOW!  ;)

Here is the sketch:
 Mollie, seriously, this is your last chance to not see your card early, lol...

Here is my card:

 I used the Pemberley Papers for this as well as Vanilla Creme and Bamboo Cardstock. 

For the banner/flag I stamped in Outdoor Denim Ink and adhered it to one of the cricut dimensional elements chipboard shapes.  The sentiment is from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection.  The rope stamp is from the Pemberley Workshop stamp set, and let me tell you, I LOVE this set!  (it is only available for a couple more weeks if you are interested.)  The background is stamped with the rose from Card Word Puzzle in the same ink using first and second generation images.  (Also only available for a short time longer!)  I added some Opaques from the Licorice selection for bling.  I love to dress up this image with the bitty pearls as well, but these took on the Pemberley blues so well I just had to use them.

Now, a funny thing happened while I was putting on the pearls.  One of them shot out of the tweezers and I could not find it.  This is hardly unusual since they are tricky to grip.  It is actually a regular occurrence around here.  They do turn up eventually.  THIS particular pearl, however, I found while I was putting the card away until it needs to be mailed.  It was at the top of the card on the dark blue Pemberley paper!  If you look closely, you can see it in the picture since I had no idea at the time that it was there, lol! 

I loved trying my hand at a sketch for a change and hope to do more in the future.  Thanks for looking!  Unless you are Mollie, then you should not be reading this!  ;)


  1. What a pretty take on the sketch! Love the color combination. TFS

  2. This is so pretty, Amie! Missed this one way back when my twins were only a few months old! Still lovely after all these years. :)


Thank you for adding some sparkle to my day with your comments!
