Mojo 300! Perfectly Patriotic!

Mojo300Badge


Hi all and welcome to a special treat with Flourishes! We know if you've been card making for any time at all that you have likely turned to the Mojo Monday blog for some sketch inspiration! Well today is a special day over at Mojo Monday -- it's their 300th Sketch! And, if you play along today, there are so many prizes on the line -- it's not even funny. Flourishes is even donating a $25 GIFT CERTIFICATE! You can click HERE for all the official details and prize information!

So, without further ado, here's a peek at the 300th sketch...

Mojo300Sketch


A very fun sketch and I'm excited to be able to play along to celebrate 300!  That's amazing isn't it?  Since today is my country's Birthday  - Canada Day, and my nation is 146 years old (just a babe right?), and I have such a love for my home and native land...I thought I'd do something very Canadian.  This is how my kids will likely be spending their Canada Day with their cousins...


We're all about the red and white, so I played that up with the sketch and this sweet set Sweet Days of Summer.  I stamped the image in Memento Love Letter Ink, on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, then stamping it over again with VersaMark and embossing with clear embossing powder.  I love the glossy look - and it's perfect for the idea of kids in the sprinkler.   I've embossed the center fishtale panel with a diamond embossing folder, then paired it all with some fun papers from MME - Simple Stories, some gingham ribbon, a Color Made Easy - Poppy Button, and Color Made Easy Poppy Cardstock.  


Here you can see the gloss...I think it goes perfectly with the kids.  I hope you can make a splash today too - in all the right ways :)  So...come on and join us in the Mojo 300 Challenge!
