Mojo Monday 185

This is my first time playing along with the Mojo Monday sketch and actually submitting my entry before the deadline!

Here is the sketch that Julee challenged us with...
I wasn't sure what I was going to create with this sketch at first. I've got quite a bit of Verve stamps I haven't used yet and received my latest order this week. So, more Verve to add to the mix and they are all just wonderful so how do you choose? Then I remembered that my brother has a birthday at the end of the week and certainly he deserves a handmade card.
I started my card with some retired SU DSP - Le'Jardin. I used just one sheet from the collection, taking advantage of the fact that it is double sided. I used River Rock and Sky Blue cardstock for mounting the layers. Instead of doing a scalloped border like you see in the sketch I chose to use the fleur de lis border stamp from "Kindred Spirits" and stamp a border using Aegean Blue ink from VersaMagic. I cut out two scalloped ovals using the Storybook cartridge and my Cricut Expression - one in white and one in Sky Blue. On the white oval I used the balloon image from "Black Tie Birdies" and stamped a bouquet of ballons and colored them ever so lightly with my copics. My "enjoy today" sentiment comes from the same set. I added some Sky Blue ribbon and some buttons from my stash to complete my card. I never feel like a project is complete without inking the edges so all the edges are inked with either Sky Blue or River Rock Classic Ink from SU. 

Well, I hope you like the card I shared with you today and if you haven't ever tried Verve stamps you should! They are simply the best clear stamps I have ever used, hands down. And no, I do not work for the company nor am I a member of their design team. Just a truly pleased customer with the products they offer and the kindness I have experienced from the Verve Co. Owner, Julee Tilman and her wonderful Verve Divas!

  3. Delightful card, Jennipher! Love the pale blues you chose. Really like the fact that you used ribbon on a card for a man. So many of us get caught in doing bleak, unembellished cards for guys! You have just proven that it's not necessary. BTW, I agree with you about the customer service at Verve, and no, I don't work for them either! I just believe in passing on attaboys when I experience good companies. :-)
