Mojo CONTEST and Verve Words of Encouragement!!!

Another 1st Monday of the month is here (well...it was yesterday!), which means a new Mojo Monday Contest! I tell you what, I LOVE these sketches! Don't know what I ever did without 'em!

The first time I saw this sketch, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it! Here is the sketch:

I had envisioned a card with a sewing theme, and when my daughter asked, "Is that PAPER?!" I knew I had succeeded! It took me awhile to finish because I tried out my little crafty sewing machine...and it worked pretty good! But if I ever want to zig-zag I will need to pull out the big machine.

And here's my card:

Verve Stamps is having a new Project Parade and this month's theme is...
Encouraging Words/Friendship. So, I think this card would qualify as encouraging, don't you? Check out the Verve Project Day Challenge!

Paper is from the new fall stack Indian Summer from DCWV. There are some beautiful papers in that stack!!! Before I stitched the pieces together, I distressed the edges of the paper with the edge of my scissors, rolling portions to get that worn fabric look. Also used my Worn Paper Distress Ink on the sides and swiped it across the fronts of each rectangle. Everything else is from my scraps / pieces parts.

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping! Leave a comment if you have time! :)
