It's a Valentine's Mojo Monday!

I decided to play along with the Mojo Monday 177 Sketch Challenge today. I definitely needed to get my Valentine Mojo going, so here's what I came up with. It's a real reach from my usual style, but I like it. I love how the Sketch Challenges really push you to break out of your usual routine. I used the Love Impressions Designer Papers and lots of Shimmer Spray (always kinda hard to see in the photos!).

Here's a close-up of the Red Glimmer Heart and the Rhinestone bling. I like the pop of the Glimmer and shine here!

And here's the Happy Valentine's banner. I kinda would have liked a little bolder look with the saying, but this works. I really like the glimmer brad at the base of the banner, and I like making it a little wavy by bending the cardstock a little. It gives that little bit of extra pop of the layer.

I hope you're getting your Valentines all ready to go - less than a week away!

Happy Monday!

Love this card! Great idea to use designer paper in the long rectangle. I especially love the glimmer paper. All of your pieces work perfectly. TFS!
