Mojo Monday #74

Well it's back to work for me today...ugh! LOL!!! I really enjoyed my day off. I was able to work on a few cards and I even got to take a little nap! :D Here is my card for Mojo Monday #74. This card took me a little longer than normal. I kept messing with the ribbon trying to get it right and I ended up tearing a piece of my image panel. I tried to fix it without having to do the whole image again, but I just couldn't make it work.

I stamped my image in Chocolate Ink and embossed it with Clear Embossing powder and I stamped the leaf branch with Juniper Ink and embossed it as well. I sewed each panel and added brads to the corners. I stamped the sentiment with Sorbet Ink and layered it on a piece of Prism Bitter Chocolate CS and rounded the corners with my corner rounder. I then added some Cocoa ribbon and the whole image is pop dotted onto my base.

Well I hope everyone has a fabulous Tuesday! It's another boot camp class for me this evening. My brother can bring friends and family for two weeks and the classes are free...so might as well take advantage and go to as many as I can! Take care ~ Jenn

Stamps: Anniversary Birds (Verve Stamps) Paper: Perfect Day (CTMH) & Prism Bitter Chocolate CS Ink: Chocolate, Juniper & Sorbet Ink (CTMH) Accents: Colonial White Brads & Cocoa Ribbon (CTMH), Sewing Machine, Pop Dots, Corner Rounder & Clear Embossing Powder

You're so lucky you had the day off! I'm a govt contractor and had to work while the govt was off. SIGH.

Enough whining... I love this card! Very beautiful! The color combo rocks and I LOVE that paper pack from CTMH!

I can relate to how you feel about going back to work. It was so hard getting up after a long weekend. To top it off, I didn't even get my Starbucks. I left my purse at home :(
