Mojo 212 & Swap Sneak Peek!

I've got a lot of crafty pots boiling right now, and one is a regular swap group run by a wonderful fellow consultant, Tina Lovell. When I saw the Mojo Sketch 212 tonight, I knew that it was perfect for one of the cards I owe Tina. In the next week or so. Chop chop!  So tonight after my team departed (Thanks, girls!), I started working on the sketch.

I used the Roxie Paper Packet -so girlie! I don't get a lot of girlie in my all boy household, so pink is always good for me. I wish the detail in that pink B&T came through - there are faint white roses sketched through out. So pretty...so I distressed it with Black ink, of course!

I rough sanded the Desert Sand base to continue to  tone down the girlie factor. I added a sweet branch and 3-D flowers cut on my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge, plus a tag with an adorable little heart cutout detail. I backed the heart with a bit of the plaid from Roxie.

The bottom scallop border is a piece of the Zip Strip you trim from along the top of the B&T papers. I love that there's no waste! A sprinkle of Sparkles and a swoosh of hemp finish off the embellishments. That is our CTMH hemp too - I just unraveled it into multiple strands, then grouped them in a wider band of fiber goodness. Now it's (way past) time for bed!

See ya back here tomorrow for even more projects!
