Mojo Monday 489-Celebrate and Enjoy
Happy Monday! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch. Since today's the first day of spring, I tried to come up with something that had a spring like feel.
I started out with a strip of floral patterned paper. After edging it with a narrow strip of red cardstock, I placed it near the bottom of a coordinating pale blue cardstock panel. I replaced the sketch's round panel with a heart shape, die cut with a pretty die from Lil' Inker Designs. For dimension, I cut the heart out twice--once from kraft cardstock and once from craft foam--then layered the two pieces before adhering them to the blue panel. For the sentiment, I die cut the word "celebrate," again from both kraft and craft foam, then adhered it to a golden yellow panel. I stamped the "and enjoy" sentiment from the Sweet Celebration stamp set just beneath it in brown ink I used foam tape to secure the sentiment to the panel, overlapping the heart just a bit. To set it off from the rest of the panel, I tucked a contrasting red strip underneath the top edge of the sentiment panel. I accented it with a tiny yellow flower and leaf. The finished panel was adhered to a red card base.
