Mojo Monday 184

I have finally managed to get a Mojo Monday sketch done again. I diligently draw a thumbnail of the sketch each Monday, with the intent of creating a card. Lately, I just haven't been able to get it together....but this week....VIOLA!

I saw the card Gina Brandstetter made for last week's Play Date Cafe challenge and I knew I needed to ink up this set called, "Paper Lantern".

I started with Pear and Cotton Candy ink stamped on Colonial White. The background was too pristine for me, so I stamped the script image from "Universal Backgrounds" in Desert Sand over top. Then I restamped the lantern in Pear and popped it over top of the original.

I used our wonderful NEW Kraft Borders across the bottom. I inked up the border with Cotton Candy ink and got this rich; deep; almost Vineyard Berry colour. I punched with my 2" scallop punch from Kraft cardstock and stamped with a retired favourite, "My One & Only" in Black.

Our new buttons and some Pear ribbon finished off this card. The patterned paper is from Sophia. Below you'll find the Mojo Monday sketch.
