Mojo Monday #71

When I sat down to stamp last night, I should have been working on projects for my upcoming events, but instead, I decided to play along with the Mojo Monday challenge.

As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew that I wanted to use this new set, Thoughts and Prayers. When I saw this set in the catalog, it immediately went on my "to buy" list.

I started with a 5"x5" Mellow Moss card and added a strip of Always Artichoke dsp on the right edge. I also added a strip of Perfect Plum cs, which I decorated with my new Eyelet border punch. I also paper pierced around the spine of the card. I used Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon for my bow accent.

I stamped the tree in Chocolate Chip ink on a Very Vanilla panel of cardstock and used my Trio Flower punch to add small flowers in Always Artichoke, Perfect Plum and Pale Plum. I used Vintage Brads to attach the flowers. I stamped the sentiment on a Very Vanilla scrap and punched it out with my Small Oval punch. I layered this into a panel of Perfect Plum, punched with my Curly Label punch. I also added one more flower with a brad to the label. I placed the tree on the card using Dimensionals.

Paper: Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum, Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke dsp
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Eyelet border punch, Small Oval punch, Curly Label punch, Trio Flower punch, Vintage Brads, Chocolate Chip taffeta ribbon, Mat Pack, paper piercer
