Mojo 189 -- Thanks a Bunch

Hello! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch (#189).. It's also May contest week.. I hope you will join us for a chance to win some Verve stamps!

We have a new Mojo Maker in the house.. please welcome.. Carole Burrage!

My sentiment is from Verve's Bloom & Grow. To make my flower, I used the Floral Circles Die Set and cut out two sets of flowers (6 total layers) out of some Melissa Frances crepe paper. I layered them, spritzed them with Iridescent Gold Glimmer mist and scrunched them up. I attached the layers with a brad, then I added a chocolate ribbon rose atop the brad. I punched a couple of leaves out of vellum and added them under the flower. Here's a detail shot:

Here's a look at the 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:
