Mojo-ed Congratulations!

This week I finally had a chance to play along with Mojo Monday again, and decided to use this week's fabulous sketch (#266, which you can see here), to create a congratulations card for one of my SUper Friends team members who just promoted to Supervisor!   Very proud of her!

Here's the card I created:

I used the Blue Ribbon stamp set for this card.  The "congrats" is actually from the "congrats GRAD" stamp, and I used my Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker to ink it up -- I was pleasantly surprised to see how nicely it worked, and that it came off my stamp just fine when I cleaned it right after stamping.  Here's a close up to give you a better view of how that came out:

I did a fair amount of sponging on this card -- you can see it on the "congrats" banner as well as on the #1 ribbon.  Here's the close up of that:

In this close up, you can also see that I used the Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker to do a little faux stitching as well.  

Here's a complete list of supplies used:

Stamps:  Blue Ribbon
Ink:  Midnight Muse, Chocolate Chip, and Early Espresso Classic Ink; Gold Stampin' Dazzle Marker
Paper:  Midnight Muse Card Stock, Calypso Coral Card Stock, International Bazaar Designer Series Paper, Very Vanilla Card Stock, Daffodil Delight (for the flowers), and Champagne Glimmer Paper
Accessories:  Stampin' Sponges, Bitty Banners Framelits, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, 1-1/4" Circle Punch, 2-3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Paper-Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat, Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack, Rhinestone Jewels

Thanks for visiting my blog!

I love the look of this card, too, Michelle!!! The colors just blend so well together and I like that splash of champagne shimmer paper. Congrats to that lucky gal (to get that great card). Marlene C.
