Heartfelt Green MOJO!

Well, I told you I would be back with another GREEN card tonight! :) Brace yourself, because this one is WAY out of the box! This is one of those cards that if someone else created it, I would probably like it, but it's definitely not my usual style and I can't say I like it for me. Does that make a bit of sense? :)

I selected the green designer paper with Julee's Mojo Monday sketch in mind. The sketch this week on her blog Poetic Artistry really caught my eye and I knew it would be a challenge. The paper is from the Bohemia line by My Mind's Eye and I've layered it on Stampin Up Chocolate Chip cardstock.

The photo doesn't show it, but it's all stamped in Staz On timber brown and embossed with a detailed clear powder that gives it a shine and added dimension. The flower was stamped and cut out and then layered onto the chocolate ship cardstock and cut out again. I added the large brown brad in the center and attached with dimensionals. I've used two Stampin Up sets for this ~ Heartfelt Thanks and Priceless. The brown twill ribbon is from the new Occasions mini collection.

I hope you're all having a great week so far! I'm glad you stopped by and I hope you'll take a minute to leave a comment and let me know what you think of my farrago of green cards this week! Smiles, Pam :)

Pam this is so lovely! I haven't done one of Julee's challenges for a few weeks and I miss doing them (things very crazy/busy here) but I really love your interpretation of her sketch.
