It's Mojo Contest Week again!

Hello all! I am here again with a card for Julee's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. It's the beginning of the month and that means Contest week. Go on over to the MojoMonday blog and join in on the fun.

After this weekend's blog hop with Verve Diva's and fans show extreme vervelicious cards and projects, I felt like I needed a crafting break. Don't misinterpret that to mean I'd had enough of the Verve-y goodness, it was just a case of carpal tunnel from all the mouse clicking and typing in comments. LOL. The crafting break lasted a whole 24 hours. LOL. I saw this week's sketch for MojoMonday and my finger's started fidgeting for ink and stamps. I refrained from starting anything for one more day until I talked to my mom Tuesday afternoon. She was discouraged about not finding a good greeting card for welcoming new clergy to the church (We need some Verve style Welcome stamps for any occasion.). She hinted that she wished she had some homemade cards from her daughter. I took the bait. The catch was that she needed it for this weekend and she lives two states away. I was up all night! LOL It is now in the mail and hopefully will reach her in time.

Okay. Now for the card.



My mother made up a money bouquet and added some silk flowers in Fuschia, Purple, and Gold. That was the inspiration for my card colors.

Hope you enjoy it. It was a blast to make it.
