Mojo 251 and Sneak Peek

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Tuesday is better than Monday but not by much! It rained here a bit yesterday but I think it’s supposed to be nice today. I have some swaps to get done for a meeting on Thursday so I will be busy later!

Today’s post is for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. The weeks sketch is provided to us by Carole Burrage…

What a nice simple sketch for this week, thanks Carole! The base of my card is Real Red Card Stock. I added a piece of Crumb Cake for a simple background layer. The piece of Real Red on the left is embossed using the Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on Real Red Card Stock. For the two pieces on the right I used the Clockworks Stamp Set and stamped the top image three times and the bottom image once in Real Red. The circle in the middle is a pice of Soft Suede punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I used the Affection Collection Stamp Set* for the scalloped cloud, stamped in Crumb Cake, and the wings which are stamped in Real Red. The pocket watch is also from the Clockworks Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Suede. The clock face is stamped in Real Red and punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. The hands are stamped in Soft Suede and I used a Metallic 3/16″ Brad in the center and then mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The cool ribbon treatment uses one of the new Round Designer Ribbon Slides* and some Soft Suede 3/8″ Taffeta Ribbon and Real Red 1/8″ Taffeta Ribbon. I used the Simply Serif Mini Alphabet to stamp the greeting with my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig. I really like the way the card came out and hope that you enjoy it too. Thank you very much for visiting to check out this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge card. Have an amazing day!
