Mojo Monday 487-Lucky to Have a Friend Like You

Lucky to Have a Friend Like You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-digital image from Verve Stamps

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  Julee has shared another great digi stamp freebie in the Verve store, so I used one of the images from the Lucky Day set to put together my card for this week's sketch.

I used the set's friendship sentiment as my focal image.  I printed it using my laser printer, then die cut it to a round panel.  After matting it on a gold pierced circle die cut, I adhered it to a pale green panel over a large green plaid half circle and a long darker green cardstock strip for a mostly monochromatic look.  I accented the sentiment with a pretty faceted heart brad positioned near the bottom of the panel.  To bring in a bit more gold, I added a pair of sequins, then matted the finished panel on gold paper before adhering it to the green card base.  

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:
