Monochromatic Viva la Verve

Here is my card for this week's sketch in Viva la Verve's July sketches. Maureen put together a really neat one this week. I didn't start out with the idea of doing a monochromatic card, but this is where I ended up.

Here is the sketch. As you can see, my square is a little tilted and lower than it should be.

Card ingredients:

Stamps: Verve love notes
Ink: SU! baja breeze
Paper: PTI white, SU! baja breeze, SU! greenhouse gala DP
Accessories: SU! pearls, seam binding, button

Have a great day!

Mojo Monday Congrats...

The Mojo Monday 200 sketch this week was perfect for a congratulations card that I wanted to make for my sister. The only thing is, I tilted the square panel to make the notepaper look like it would be on a desk... She just finished her special education diploma, so I wanted something that had to do with school on the card.

Here it is:
