Mojo Monday #163

Hello!  Today I decided to play along with the Verve Monday Mojo sketch challenge!  I haven't done one in a while and I love the sketches!

Edited:  If you were here earlier or saw this card in your Google Reader I changed the color of the sentiment so that it would show up better!

Here is the sketch that this card is based off of.

This card is also for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge.  The challenge theme is "Give Thanks" and we were to create a Thanksgiving card or anything that reflects that theme.  So I went with a fall look and a grateful sentiment. 

I picked an unconventional color scheme which I think keeps the fall theme fresh.  I also used PTI's Woodgrain background on the aqua color to reflect a nature feel to the card.  I love the leaf images included in Verve's "Autumn Splendor" set.  There are so many choices!  Lots of fun options!

Here is a closeup of the baker's twine from The Twinery through the button.  I chose a button with large holes and then took each strand through one hole and then tied the bow.  It was super easy to fit the twine through that way with no fraying!

Thanks for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed the card!  Have a great day!

  1. What a great card Jen! I love the color scheme and those leaves!

  2. Oh, this is so pretty! I really like the details like the woodgrain and the twine. That twine looks a lot thicker than what I have. Is it really sturdy? I find that mine seems flimsy...but it's not from Twinery. Hmm...might have to check them out.

    Anyway, I love the colors and the images you used on your card. Very pretty!

  3. Love this card AND that sketch! The double twine through the button looks terrific! :)
