Mojo Monday 478-All of My Smiles

All of My Smiles card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  I used this week's sketch to create a love themed design in a primary color scheme.

The heart patterned paper was the starting point for my design.  It's been in my stash forever and it's about time I used it!  It's hard to see in the photo, but the hearts are outlined with a blue scallop, so that's where the blue in my card's color scheme comes in.  I placed the heart pattered panel on a piece of light blue cardstock, then added a strip of red cardstock, edged with a narrow piece of turquoise cardstock, to the left side.  For texture, I wrapped a piece of  red grosgrain ribbon around the panel.  The "all of my smiles begin with you" sentiment from Verve's Better Together set was stamped in blue ink on a white pierced circle die cut.  After matting the panel on a pale blue circle, I added it over the patterned panel.  I accented the text with a pair of blue hearts cut with Verve's Heart Quartet die.

Don't forget--since it's the first Monday of the month, it's also contest time.  A stamp set from Verve Stamps is up for grabs from the lucky contest winners, so be sure to play along.  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:
