Mojo Monday Sketch Entry

Sweet sleepy kitty smile!!!

Hi, Friends.....

I am here to share my entry in the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  This is the last day to enter, but I really wanted to squeak in with one.  Here's the sketch by the lovely Julee Tilman that was provided.  Looks perfect for I pulled out my newly sorted blue-green bag of scraps and chose some I liked together.  I inked around the edges of each piece with Distress Ink in Gathered Twigs.

The sentiment is a little bit hard to read:  "Smile and leave a little sparkle wherever you go."
In my stash, I found the vellum sentiment panel all stamped and heat embossed with glittery white powder and ready-to-use after die cutting with My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Oval STAX die set.  It was a reject from a different project some months ago, but I really like how it looks on here.  Too bad that it didn't photograph well. :(  I played around with my brand-new Nuvo Crystal Drops in Bubblegum and made a line of drops along the curved edge.  I am still practicing with this super-fun product!!

I really love the subdued colors of this pretty card with the sparkly embossing.  Hope you have enjoyed it, too!!!  Thank you for stopping by and leaving your nice comments.

  1. Lovely card, Janice, all the papers go so well together. Love the vellum sentiment panel. The Nuvo Crystal Drops are brilliant - my favourite discovery of 2017! I'm still practising too If you make the drops on wax paper, they peel off when they're dry and you can use them like pearls. xx
