Mojo Monday 209

Good Morning!  I hope your Sunday is off to a good start!  We are hanging out at home this morning...shhhh...we skipped church...don't tell anyone!  :)  We had a bunch of friends over last night for dinner and we stayed up way too late!  It was a lot of fun!  So I didn't have time to get this post ready until now!  This weeks Mojo sketch is a fun one!  Here is my card...

And here is the sketch or at least how I see it...

I used Verve's Bloom and Grow for my homemade background paper.  I stamped several of the blooms with different colors of my most favorite ink right now...Amuse!  Then I took PTI's Text Style and stamped over the top in True Black.  The sentiment comes from Verve's Kind Words.  I added a bow and some flowers to go along with the sketch details and that's it!  

Anything fun going on today?  It's a rainy day here in Kansas and oh so well needed!  I am thinking its gonna be a lazy day for sure!  Again...well needed!  Hope you have a great Sunday too!  So glad you stopped by!
