Viva La Verve/Mojo Monday

We just got back from Florida--my grandfather passed away about 10 hours after we arrived. We were so thankful that we made it to his house before he died. After being gone a week I am having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. I did finally make to cards today.

The above card was for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. Click on my Mojo Monday Badge in the side bar to get the Mojo Mondy low down. This card has no stamping on it--I should have at least used a sentiment!! I used Whisper White, Pacific Point, and Basic Black. I used both black and white ribbon, black brads, CB with an embossing folder, and a scallop scissors. I really need to order that scallop punch!!

This card was for the Viva La Verve sketch challenge with a twist. The twist this week was to use a button somewhere on our card. Amber said we could use one or one hundred!! I decided to use one for the center of my flower. I tied it with some white cording and then colored it with my Apricot Appeal marker. The flower and sentiment were created using Apricot Appeal DP. The sentiment was punched out with my oval punches. The flower was created using my daisey die from Stampin' Up! The layout for the sketch was created using Bashful Blue DP. I tied a ribbon to link the sketch pieces together.
I had several of you let me know you missed me--that really meant alot!! Thanks!! Also thanks for all the thoughts of sympathy that were sent me way!! I felt the love of my cyber friends!! Happy Stampin!! It feels good to be back and stampin!!
