Mojo Monday 500...

Image
Go figure that I enter the very last time Mojo Monday occurs!

That said, the sketch was a good one:


So, seeing some of the designs that came in did help, but I wanted something a bit different. I love Verve Stamps and I wanted to convey a "happy trails" kind of theme without being too sappy (I am a bit of a sap, but don't ruin my rep!). 
I came up with this:

The paper came from Illustrated Fairh, the ribbon came from Hobby Lobby, and the sentiment is from Verve's New Mercies set.  I also figured out the two-finger bow method that Gina K. uses on her cards. Yay!
As a newer card maker, this was a push in the right direction; I like being challenged and I liked this result. :)
Happy crafting!

I'm quite excited; this is the first card I made using the Simon Says Stamp card kit for June and I'm quite thrilled with how it turned out:


This kit is sold out (Sorry!), but the individual pieces should be available; I have linked to the items that I have used in the kit.

Copic Sketch markers used:

I also used some Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard for a finishing touch.
