I guess I never felt comfortable doing the Mojo Monday challenge until I got myself a few Verve stamps. So, here’s my entry for the Mojo Madness 107 contest!

I used several sheets from the To the Nines Specialty DSP package and stamped my images with Chocolate Chip ink. The sentiment turned out a bit light when stamped with Classic ink, so I ended up using Craft ink and clear embossing it. I colored the image with Always Artichoke chalk and sprayed it with a fixative.

Thanks for stopping by!

    okay, had to come comment, aside from this being a beautiful card, I was soooo excited to see you use some contraband, lol! I think this is one of the few times you have posted non-SU items. LOVE it! have fun with your new stamps, Verve rocks!

    You’re so funny, Lisa! 🙂 You can expect to see more “contraband” from me in the future!

    Your card is beautiful. I love the simplicity of it. It would make a perfect “guy” card.
