MOJO300 is Peachy


Today's Mojo sketch has so many elements - a circle, square, 2 pennants, an embellishment, and a background layer. 

I didn't really think outside the box, but I had fun!
I used CTMH Slate cardstock as the card base while the background layer is Avonlea Green, and added a layer of Avonlea patterned paper.
The pennant is in Avonlea Off White and a dry-embossing folder to add texture. The circle is 2-1/4, from another Avonlea pattern in the paper pack.

Sweet Life - July SOTM

 This design showcases one of the stamps in the July Stamp of the Month, Sweet Life! I heat-embossed it with Detailed Black embossing powder and used watercolor pencils to add color. I also dabbed the branch with Antique Linen Distress Ink, then layered it on Avonlea Green. 
The sentiment is in the For a Friend set, in Outdoor Denim Ink, layered on Avonlea Teal. A brown button tied with baker's twine adds a nice touch!

Thank you for looking today and congrats to Mojo Mondays for hitting a milestone! Thanks for the fun!
