Mojo Monday 458-Sending You Happiness

Sending You Happiness card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Mama Elephant

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  I put together a sweet card based on this week's layout.

The panda with a box full of hearts from Mama Elephant's Incoming Mail stamp set is my focal image.  I colored the image with Copic markers, then used the matching die to cut out the colored image.  It doesn't show in the photo, but I gave the hearts a bit of sparkle with some glitter from a Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle pen.  It's so pretty IRL!  After attaching the image to a light blue panel with foam tape, I stamped the "sending happiness your way" sentiment from the Happy Mail set beneath it in black ink.  I layered the image over a blue dotted panel with a contrasting solid red panel along the right side.  All of the panels were matted on navy blue for a nice pop.  The panels were adhered to a light blue cardstock panel set on a matching navy blue card base.  I added a pair of fishtail flags extending down from the top of the card base, almost touching the image panel, and a triangle-like piece along the right side of the card.  It's a good thing I kept my old photo corner punch--it was perfect for creating the triangle!  Now that I look at the card again, I probably should have replaced the triangle with an arrow of some kind . . .

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:
