The Mojo Monday sketch this week was just right for one of the new Verve stamp sets I got with my Viva la Verve winnings recently. The "groovy" sentiment in the Surely Goodness set makes me a little nostalgic for the 60's. :)
The seam binding was dyed with Distress Reinkers, and the white faux stitches were made with a new pen I picked up yesterday--a Montana Acrylic Paint Marker. I think I've finally got a white opaque marker that will actually work! Yay!

I did some masking and stamped a few of the flowers from the Surely Goodness stamp set, then colored them with Copics. The inside sentiment is from a Hero Arts set.

I'll be back later today with another Flourishes card using the brand new Handmade Snowflakes set.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Mojo Monday #314
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Use a Rubber or a Clear Stamp

This is such a cool card. So many wonderful details and I especially love the sponged edges in combination with the black matting. Makes everything so cozy looking!
