...MoJo MoNDaY...329...

This week's MoJo MoNDaY sketch was another great one! 

Super simple and inspiring :)

I  turned to a pad of paper that was sitting on my desk...I just pulled out Valentine paper and LoVeY stamps this weekend...I don't normally do PReTTY...I'm much more comfortable with CuTE :)

But this echo park -yours TRULY- pad of paper definitely called for something pretty.

I pulled out my TaYLoReD EXPreSSioNS -Vintage Dreamer-'s absolutely gorgeous...but it hadn't been used yet because...I'm a little afraid of leaving my cutesy comfort zone :)

Here's what I came up with...The chevron rosette turned out well...I like how graphic it looks combined with the dramatic embossed  medallion stamped image.

I'm thinking this will probably just sit in a gift basket or be tied onto a present because the rosette is just too thick to fit well into an envelope.

Instead of doing a layer of paper on the bottom as pictured in the sketch, I stamped the sentiment there and added a few black rhinestones...I've never done a trio of stones like that before...but I'm thinking I'll be doing it again..I like how it seems to anchor the sentiment without being distracting.

I have a feeling I'll be visiting this sketch again before the week is over :)

Thanks for LooKinG!
