Happy Monday

I’m in a wonderful mood! I accomplished more at work today than I expected to and I’m all caught up with my report writing. I’ll be out of the office for the next 3 days and won’t get a chance to do much work, so this feels amaziing! I’m TOTALY in love with the new SU colors coming out in July. I received a sample of the 5 new colors last week and I wanted to hang on to them until I could pre-order full packages, but I just couldn’t wait any longer. It didn’t help that every piece of patterned paper I picked up matched the new colors perfectly! After trying 3 times to use a current color, I gave in. I made this card for today’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge (MOJO136). Given the option, I will always choose a square card. I used Taylored Expression Choice Buttercream for my card base (5.25 x 5.25) and added a panel of Early Espresso (LOVE IT!!). I added a panel of My Mind’s Eye patterned paper. Tucked behind that is a little panel of Buttercream and behind those I tucked some punched pieces of coordinating patterned paper. I added some brown self-adhesive pearls to the Buttercream panel. I stamped the sentiment from Verve in Momento Rich Cocoa and cut it and layered it with my nesties circle and scallop circle dies. I sponged some Valnut Distress ink around the edge to give it a little dimension. I popped this up with dimensionals. I added some SU Vanilla satin ribbon and tied the bow with a brown button from my stash using embroidery floss. Thanks for a great sketch and thanks for having a look.
