It's time to get your Mojo on again. It is Mojo Monday Sketch #76 this week, and with it being the first sketch of the month it is contest time as well. The lucky winner will receive a Verve set!! And with a new release tomorrow from Verve stamps, who would not want to enter this contest?! Here is the sketch for Mojo76:

And here is what I did with the sketch!

I have found myself gearing toward the plain and simple cards lately. I like that the card focuses on the main image, and it looks crisp. I started out by coloring the stamped image and cutting it out and embossing it with the nestabilities. Then, I cut out the largest square nestability and embossed that as well. I added piercing around the edge and adhered it to the base. For the center panel, I decided to leave it plain because I chose I decorative ribbon. I decided on this ribbon because the swiss dots complimented the piercing throughout the card. After attaching the main image with pop dots, I punched out the tiny butterflies and added a gemstone to make them pop a little. Lastly, I added piercing at the bottom with my sentiment. I definitely used my stamp-a-ma-jig for alignment of the sentiment.
