Mojo Monday 491-A Cup of Kindness

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  Julee has shared another great printable/digi stamp freebie in the Verve store, so I used one of the images along with a stamped sentiment from a Verve set for my design.

I had already colored up the teacup image with Copic markers last week, so I cut it out to use on my card, then looked through my patterned paper stash for a pair of coordinating patterned papers.  I hit the jackpot with these two--a pretty floral pattern with a black background and a tonal blue striped pattern.  After matting both panels on pale gray cardstock, I arranged them on a light aqua card base.  The "a cup of kindness just for you" sentiment was stamped on a pale gray strip with a slanted edge.  I positioned the strip on the cardfront, then added the teacup image on top, using foam tape for dimension.

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:
