Mojo Monday Sketch 129

Another Monday, and I'm feeling good -- A lot of interruptions on this card for the Mojo Monday Sketch129, but I finally got it done, and it's still Monday. -- at least here in the West it is.
For three weeks in a row now I've put my hand in a drawer full of backgrounds and pulled out one to be a piece on my card.  Seems to give me that "added edge", otherwise I could go on for hours floundering in a stack of paper and ink trying to decide what to use.

I used my newest Cuttlebug cut and emboss folder, "Ornamental Iron",  to cut the band and emboss the top background. I really do love the ornamental iron band, which by the way, was cut and mirror imaged to get the full band.

Looking at the scan, this is a very flat card except for the sentiment and flowers that I popped up with dimensionals.  I'm thinking that it will be going in the mail for one of the 12 cards I swap per month.  

So, here it is!  Sketch #129.  Hope you like it.

I looked at my card, and couldn't get to "love" it - so, I glammed it up a bit to get it to look like the right one.  I'm looking at the two side-by-side, thinking that the bow has to go and the 3 flower brads were enough to finish off the card. A typical example of "sometimes less is better".

Remember, take time to Stamp up a storm, ink up a wish and send it on to someone to brighten their day.
