Mojo meets JUGS

Hi there friends,
Wow this past week flew by! I've been super busy since Finals are quickly approaching & there's so much to do. I had a quick chance to play along with this week's Mojo Monday challenge. It was another great sketch to work with. Definitely one I will use again!
Here's the sketch:
Here's my card:
 I used papers from the MS ink key & heart collection. The hearts are felt layered together with a heart pin through it. You might notice that the ribbon ruffle is messy at the top & neater at the bottom- that's to symbolize how love can sometimes be both as turbulent as the sea & as right as rain. ---> Just kidding! That's just how it turned out, but I was getting pretty deep with that, right?! Hee! Hee! Hey, that kind of writing talent is what helped me get through those 25 page papers in college, let me tell ya!

 The JUGS challenge this week is to decorate & line a matching envelope for your card. So that's what I did with the scraps- which were just the right size for the liner. I also punched a border along the edge :) I also stamped the little heart in the corner.
 I don't know if I've ever lined my envelopes before, but WOW! it just makes your card 10 times better by just adding that little touch!

Here they are together:

Thanks so much for peeking today!
Your homework: Do something that makes your heart happy!

  4. I haven't taken the time to leave a comment for you in ages, but this one was so beautiful I just had to!! Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! The lined envie makes it!!! I haven't been able to consistently finish the insides of my cards, so I'm thinkin' envies may still be a stretch for me! Love it though and it inspires me!
