For MoJo Week 144
It has been such a long time since I have done any crafting. I had 2 neices and their 5 children for Memorial Day and then 2 grandsons for a week. My craft room is also a guest room so I had to put every thing away. I have been having craft "withdrawl". LOL! But I have been printing out all the MoJo sketches so I am ready to go. It is the season for weddings so I decided to start with that. This card is a quick one from my scrap paper file. The card is ivory cardstock. The layers are dark brown, a tan fleur de lis print, white rose print and a ivory ribbon with gold embossing. I used a glitter pen to enhance the center rose and the love which is stamped in timber brown. On the inside, I used the ribbon to anchor the top of the message. Wow it is fun to be back in the craft room. And thanks to the MoJo crew for making it easy to get back in the swing.

I found this sketch challenge at I had just bought the "Scor-bug" from TAC and wanted to try something with it. I scored the white card to make a grid. I punched the border with a Martha Stewart punch. Then stamped 3 daisies(one of those $1.00 stamps at Jo-Ann's checkout aisle) and colored them with Tombow markers and drew in stems. Inside I used the same border punch for the pink and let it show beneath the front. The sentiments are from TAC also. I am looking forward to doing a lot more accenting with the Scor-bug.
