Kindness Mojo


Hi Everyone!

Well, I have thoroughly been enjoying my first week of all the kids being in school! I'm sure many of you can relate to that. I have just been wandering around leisurely between Starbucks, Barnes and Noble and the crafting stores! I know it's been a couple of days since I've posted a card, so I wanted to go ahead and share something with you before the day gets away from me once again. I am going to try to come back and post a recipe for recipe Thursday if I can; but I may have to wait until next week for that.
Anyhow, on to the card. I started with a Vintage Cream base and added the layers as shown. The green is a mellow moss type green I had in my stash, then the Aqua Mist which I punched using my Fiskar's April Lace punch. Don't ask how I got the corners to work out that way...I really have no idea; but I was ecstatic when it did!! I used the Swirls embossing folder before adding to the green background. The pattern paper is from DCWV "Linen Closet" mat stack. I cut a small piece of Aqua Mist using the Label 11 Nestabilities and then stamped the sentiment from SU's "Whimsical Words" set with Mellow Moss ink and rounded the corners. The circles at the bottom were cut using Petite scalloped circle nestabilities and then I added the Prima flowers and brad.
I was unsure at first how I would like the thread wrapped around; but I wanted to say as true to the Mojo Monday sketch as possible. In the end, I think I rather like how it creates a uniformed diagonal line across the center of the card with the sentiment and the flower.
Ok, so that's all for me for the moment! Have a great day and thank you so much for spending some of your time with me!
