Mojo Monday Sketch

DSCF2901-1

I saw lots and lots and lots of cards using the Mojo Monday sketch for last week--I even made one myself! So I subscribed to the blog, and it is a nice way to start out the week--Julee always has nice sketches to get your creativity going! This is Mojo Monday Sketch #69:

Mojo Monday #69

I am not 100% sold on my take on the sketch--first of all, the DP is from Figgy and Wassail, so my mind kept saying, "Christmas, Christmas!" And the colors are reminiscent of holidays, too, but I wanted the theme to be more "loving and thoughtful". I think it is the Baja Blue heart. I don't know.... I love the bird and the three little elements, and it's done, so I am stickin' with it!

  • Stamps: Always, Essential Sentiments (MFT)
  • Paper: Baja Breeze, Bravo Burgundy, Wassail, Figgy
  • Ink: Bravo Burgundy Craft, Mellow Moss, Baja Breeze, Always Artichoke
  • Acc: Nesties, Clear EP & Heat Tool, Punches

  6. You are being too hard on your self. I didn't see it as seasonal at all. It has a masculine valentines look, to me.

  12. Now my first thought was how terrific that Figgy Pudding paper looked and you'd never know that it was supposed to be a Christmas-themed paper! This is gorgeous, and goes perfectly with the SU! colors you paired it with! The heart and bird are lovely!
