Mojo Where There is Love There is Life

Hello! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch (#175)! I tend to make a lot of vertical cards, so this horizontal sketch was really fun to work with.. I hope you aren't getting tired of Valentine's Day / Love cards.. I usually don't send out a lot of Valentine's cards, but this year, I've really been getting into the hearts and fun lovey dovey products!

I was inspired by the colors (Pink, Grey and Black) in the Echo Park - Be Mine collection. To create my background paper, I alternately stamped the Gandhi quote "Where there is love there is life" (from Verve's Text Objects) in Memento London Fog and the strip of tiny hearts (from Hearts on Fire) in Memento Rose Bud. For my main sentiment panel, I stamped the frame from Love Notes and cut it out with the matching Classy Label die. I then stamped a larger version of the same quote on the label.

I embossed some tiny hearts onto the smaller rectangular panel and punched the Smokey Shadow mat with a Martha Stewart Mini Hearts border punch. Here's a close-up shot as it's often hard to see the details on dark cardstock:

Here's this week's fabulous sketch:

I hope you will play along with us this week! Please visit the Mojo Monday blog for all the details and to see the wonderful creations by the Mojo Makers! You can also visit their individual blogs for more details (see my sidebar for links to each).
