Mojo Monday and the New Verve Release is almost here...

Ok - you get a second post today. I finished my card for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. This week offers special incentive - a chance to win one of the new Verve Stamp Release sets. The release is Sunday March 8th at 8pm. Check out the sneak peaks at the Verve blog.

On to the card, I used the flowers from the Verve Meditations set. I first stamped them with VersaMagic chalk ink in Jumbo Java and then added clear embossing powder. To give a little extra color I went over them with my Copic marker. I hand trimed and added them to the ivory cardstock with brads from The Paper Studio. I bought a new paper piercing template and was eager to try out the swirl to follow the sketch. The sentiment came from the Verve Thankful Blossoms set. The decorative border came from a border punch by The Paper Studio. The design paper and colored teals are all from an ATD paperpack called a Family Affair. I finished the card off with a satin ribbon bow. Easy peasy as they say.

Thanks for looking.

Have a great night!

Cath, it looks great and is so true to the sketch. I love the paper piercing. What is the template that you used?

Lin - the template is from Ornare. I found it at Mary Maxim's in the clearance srapbook section but it looks like it's a plate for needlework deigns. I've never seen these before.
