Mojo Grateful Heart

Good morning! I first pulled out Julee's latest Mojo sketch, Mojo115, and some new Verve sets, but my end result turned out nothing like I had imagined! I started with a couple of pieces of Basic Grey patterned paper and pulled the colors Dark Chocolate and Melon Berry from it, but in the end, I went with no patterned paper! I swapped out a busy background for tiny hearts embossed onto Vintage Cream. I stamped the hearts from Thankful Accents around my die cut circle and punched a couple of butterflies for the center. Finally, I used the Grateful Heart Plain Jane for my sentiment. I wanted to emboss it in dark brown or cream so it would stand out more, but I could only find some silver pearl embossing powder in my drawer. It reads "Give thanks with a grateful heart".

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
