Mojo Monday 400 Makes Me Dream Big

Welcome to my little piece of the blog world!  I had a huge day creating yesterday and I just couldn't decide what to share first.  I am the MOST excited about my Mojo Monday 400 card, so lets just start there, shall we? 

With her 400th amazing sketch, Julee Tilman, the wonderfully talented creator of Verve Stamps, has announced that she is also going to be choosing new DT members, so I'm throwing my name in the hat with high hopes.  Actually, if I win some new product, I will be ecstatic even, so lets get to it!



My head was just swimming with ideas before I settled on the Dream Big flowers and a no sentiment card.  These types of cards are JUST the thing to have on hand when you need them...


I stamped in first and second generation Smoothie Inks from CTMH along with Sweet Leaf for the leaves.  Then I added some darker green with my ShinHan Leaf Green Alcohol Ink Marker.

The perfectly round stitched window is made using a circle die from MCT.  I adore stitched dies!  I really also wish I had that scalloped flower die that coordinates with these flowers from Verve, lol.  They are next on my shopping list, I believe.

The spray of peachy sequins are a mix of brands including CTMH, Studio Calico, and Verve.  I also added a couple of green epoxy bubbles on the right...


This fantastic background came together using the Botanical Backgrounds My Acrylix and adding some pops of color with the same green marker and adding Light Orange to the mix...


I just love the combination of colors with the Whisper CS in the background.  Thanks for taking a peek today!  Thanks for so many inspiring sketches, Julee and company!  :)
