TWO MOJO MONDAYS!

Today, I was able to create two cards from Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday (MOJO41) Sketch. This first card was completely inspired by Kelly Lunceford's card HERE. Kelly's selection of papers, stamps, and embellishments is brilliant, and I was compelled to use them with this sketch.
RECIPE
Stamps: Define Your Life, Defining Alphabet
Paper: River Rock, More Mustard, and Very Vanilla CS, Wild Wasabi Prints DP
Ink: Wild Wasabi and Chocolate Chip Classic Ink
Embellishments: Little Reminders No. 2 Accents & Elements, Antique Brass Jumbo Eyelets, Antique Brass Brad, Wild Wasabi Striped Grosgrain Ribbon
Tools: Paper Piercing Tool & Mat Pack, Crop-A-Dile
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

Here's my second card using the colors Real Red, Bashful Blue, and Barely Banana. The main flower image was created by layering an assortment of self-adhesive die cuts from Build-A-Flower Accents & Elements. In addition to the vertical line of paper piercing, there is paper piercing within the For a Friend stamped image. There are Real Red CS 1/2" circles backing the Bashful Blue buttons.

RECIPE
Stamps: For a Friend (Level One Hostess, Spring-Summer 2008 Collection)
Paper: Real Red and Barely Banana CS, Bashful Blue Prints DP
Ink: Real Red Classic Ink Pad
Embellishments: Bashful Blue Buttons, Real Red Brad, Real Red Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Build-A-Flower Accents & Elements

Tools: 1/2" Circle Punch, Paper Piercing Tool & Mat Pack,
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals

Thanks for looking !!!!

Both of these cards are beautiful. I like how you stamped the letters over the definition. I always try to be SO careful not to let my letters touch and now I want to try it this way!! I LOVE it! TFS
