Just Because

Boy I like these Mojo Monday sketches! It's a contest week so there are prizes! If you haven't checked it out- go do it and be sure to play along!

I did adjust the sketch a bit, to work for me. Once I had the majority of the card designed and put together I realized I didn't quite have room for the sentiment and line of piercing or whatever at the bottom, so I improvised and just put it near the bottom.

For this card I combined patterned paper from Urban Garden and Urban Oasis- which work great together! I love that they have many similar colors because that just gives me more "room to move" within the patterns. These flowers are from Fifth Avenue Floral. They are embossed then watercolored for some highlight. The sentiment is also embossed in black and is from a retired set called Fancy Flexible Phrases. You already know I love that set! This luscious ribbon is satin kiwi!

Thanks Mojo Makers for the awesome sketch! And thanks for stopping by to check in. Why not drop me a note to let me know you've visited?!
