Good Morning & Happy Hump Day My Friends!!!!
Today I'm sharing a card I made last night using the Mojo Sketch....I had to wait until this morning to take my pic but that's what happens when you have late night fun!!
Anyway, I'm sure you noticed that I'm still using the Mocha Morning Specialty DSP....well; it's acutally the exact same piece that I started with 2 weeks ago! I'm going to use every last piece of this gorgeous DSP since I had to cut into it & I'm not going to waste 1 part of it LOL!!!! Now that I've gotten that out of the way; I'll tell you a little bit about my creation......the sketch was pretty easy to follow but surprisingly enough, the bow was the hardest part to me! Maybe it was because my kiddos were in the room with me watching Trading Places on the pc & we were laughing through the whole movie but that bow really gave me a hard time so after some thought; I just used my finger and voila---it finally looked pretty good! I adhered it with mini glue dots & scrunched up the ends a little to give it a bit more pizzazz & I really like how it looks on my card! I stamped my butterfly twice cutting one out for more dimension & adhering a pearl in the center--it just looks better with that pearl in the middle....don't you think? I stared at my card for a moment thinking that it still needed something so I tied the hemp twine around my card---squeezing a bit too hard, added the additional pearls, the stamped image on the vanilla panel & last but not least....vanilla smooch spritz. Did I tell you how much I LOVE that stuff?!! I think it makes a perfect finisher to any project you're working on & I must say that it makes the Mocha Morning DSP even more beautiful!!!!!
Well, I'm off to do a bit of blog hopping this morning before my children wake up. I'll be back in a couple of days with something else for you to oogle at....Mr. Brown brought HAPPINESS yesterday so I need to play!!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!
Until Next Time,
Hugs & Love,
