At the last minute.....

So I decided to stay indoors today as the temperature today hit over 100 degrees here in Kansas.  Great idea to spend some time in my craft room and keep cool.  So when browsing the challenges, I remembered Mojo Monday ended today!  So here I am at the last minute!


I have been using my Distress Inks soo much lately that I thought it fun to use them here with some Verve goodness!  Using Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, and Mustard Seed, I sponged these over white embossed flowers from Hope Blooms.  I am in LOVE with the results and it's sooo easy to do!!!  I used the Mojo Monday sketch but turned it on its side and placed the elements a bit differently......I hope that's OK as that's what my interpretation of the sketch was!



It's kind of hard to tell (should have used darker ink) but I stamped the friend border strip from Texted Objects on my scallop strip before sewing it to my sponged panel.  What do you think?  I love how the Distress Inks match so many of my PTI colors......here I used my Terracotta Tile ribbon and cardstock.  Ok, that's it for me tonight!!

Did you see the challenge over at Simply Scrapping Crafts?  It's all about embossing.  I think my card qualifies!  hehe

This also was made for the challenge out there over at Moxie Fab where "stamping is the predominent element".........Stamp It! Cards Week Challenge in the Moxie Fab World
