Mojo Monday - A first for me!

I decided to join in on the Mojo Monday sketch after a great read of NanaDonna's blog.  She's a regular participant on the RAQ challenge on the Cricut forum that I have been following.

Here is the sketch for this week Mojo Monday # 238

I always find it a challenge to align the squares perfectly so I decided to take an image from Cricut Ornamental Iron 2 cartridge and weld the 12 squares together using my Gypsy.  It was so easy and within a few minutes, I was cutting out the design.  

For the first card, I made more of a mosaic/stained glass effect with the base paper that I chose.  The rosette was created from the Ribbons and Rosettes cartridge and the leaves are Accent essentials (inked with Peeled Paint distress in).  I added pearls and a few layers of ribbon.

For this second card, I decided on a black and white palette and flipped the image.
The frame was inked with Versamark and embossed with clear powder to give it a shiny look.  I made a few pearl stick pins, added a feather and created the small tag.  The "thanks" flower was from the Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge.

I always need "thank you" cards on hand to show my appreciation to my dear friends for their wonderful hospitality and generosity. 

Enjoy your weekend!
