Mojo Monday 469-Friends Are Life's Nicest Perks

Friends Are Life's Nicest Perks card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps
Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  I went with another coffee themed design, this time featuring stamps and dies from Clear and Simple Stamps.

Once I picked the patterned paper that I used to cover most of the blue card base, this card came together pretty quickly.  I used coordinating solid papers for the sketch's rectangle, circle, and fishtail flag panels.  The "friends are life's nicest perks" sentiment from the A Little Java set was stamped in brown pigment ink on a blue panel matching the card base.  I accented it with a fun dotted coffee pot, then matted the panel on kraft cardstock before adhering it to the card base. A few blue enamel dots scattered around the sentiment panel completed the design.

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:
