Mojo Meditations

I had some time to stamp this morning and was able to play along with this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  This week's sketch is also a contest!!  You could win a prize if you're one of the top picks, so head on over and play along! 

For my card I used an older set called Meditations.  Since I wanted to use the sentiment for the long strip of cardstock, I had to place the scalloped circle behind that panel so as not to cover up the sentiment.  I did one of my favorite things on this card and that is to stamp in white on dark cardstock (or in this case, dark patterned paper).  I just love the look of that and I think it brings focus to the sentiment in a different way. 

Hope you'll play along with the Mojo Monday sketch!  Thanks for stopping by!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Meditations (Verve Stamps); Ink- Fresh Snow (PTI), Burnt Umber (Palette); Paper- Brook Collection (Crate Paper), Bazzill; Accessories- border punch (EK Success), Mistletoe Cuttlebug folder (Provocraft), corner chomper rounder, white gel pen, paper piercer, Butterfly Embellishments (Taylored Expressions);  Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"

Charmaine, your card looks amazing! Love the colors, the sentiment and the gorgeous butterfly.
Sorry I have been so quiet lately. School will start again soon and hopefully I will be back in my stamping/blogging groove.
Hugs and smiles
