Mojo Violets

I was thrilled when Brandi emailed me and asked if I would like to use some of the ribbon and paper she sells in her ebay store MyLittleRibbonShop. Of course I said Yes!!! Me and Ribbon are a match made in heaven! LOL! She sent me some fabulous ribbon and some paper and other goodies. I put it to good use today on this card that *sort of* fits with this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I started off with good intentions of following it, but my design choices made me have to add something here and there. I am sure you all know what I am saying! Right?

She sent me some yummy paper from Cosmo Cricket. I think I may be mixing lines, but I liked the combo, so I went with it.


I thought the little Violet cupcake image that I picked up from Ellen was the perfect fit for the focal image. It was sitting on the shelf begging to be inked. I used a combination of Copic and Prismacolor markers to color it. The sentiment is from Papertreyink's "Heart Prints Sentiments". I had to have that set as soon as it was released and I am so glad I purchased it. It has been so versatile.


I sponged all of the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink for a vintage feel. The bottom was scalloped with the scallop edge punch by SU! It has been a bit neglected as of late, since I have been using my Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch which seems like it is almost ready to give up on me!
Thanks, Brandi, for all of the fun goodies. I can't wait to use more! Thanks for fluttering by!
P.S. I will be back tomorrow with one of Jen's new SFYTT!
