Mojo Monday 436-You're Spectacular

You're Spectacular card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from My Favorite Things

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  I turned to my die collection to put together my card for this week's sketch.

I used the Geek Is Chic Glasses die set from My Favorite Things to cut four pairs of eyeglasses--three from dark gray cardstock and one from shimmery silver paper.  The gray die cuts were arranged on a piece of chevron patterned paper, angling them to add interest.  The silver pair was adhered to a gray circle, then attached to the panel using foam tape for dimension.  I stamped the "you're spectacular" from the coordinating Geek Is Chic stamp set in gray pigment ink on a white fishtail flag strip and added it to the card, tucking the straight end underneath the raised circle.  To bring in a pop of color, I die cut a tiny heart and adhered it to the end of the sentiment.  The finished panel was layered on to a gray card base.

Head on over to the Mojo Monday blog for more inspiration from the design team and to add your own take on this week's sketch!  You can also find all of the Mojo Makers at their blogs here:
