Mojo 254 -- Spread Your Wings

Hello! It's time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch (#254). Carole has a fabulous sketch for us, so I hope you play along!

Today is the first day of school for my Sabrina. Not only is it her first day of 4th grade (sigh... I have no idea where the time went), but it is also her first day at a new school. Luckily, I'm probably more nervous about it than she is. :)  

I used Wings of Love to make her a card that I will tuck into her backpack. Sabrina's favorite color is pink, and lately she's really into polka dots, so I used a couple of polka dot patterns. I pieced and colored the heart with wings and added some Star Dust Stickles to the wings for some sparkle. Here's a detail shot:

Verve Stamps is celebrating 5 years, and Julee is having a sale you won't want to miss!

Here's a look at Carole's sketch:

  1. Your card is gorgeous! Best wishes to your daughter. I know what you baby girl is 19 and will be heading off for her second year of college and I can't believe that she is a young lady. I want to take her school shopping, but have to remember she is an adult and she has to decide on her own. YIKES! Enjoy the time!
