Happy Monday!  I have been so busy this past week that I have not had a chance to load a card I made.  I am using the Mojo189 sketch from last Monday.  For this card I am using Verve's One Person stamp set. I am also using Verve's Jotted Heart Die and Charming Oval die set.  I got a paper pack I ordered and I thought I would play around with some various pattern mixing.   I also tried to do what I would like to call "faux liquid pearls."  Julee and Sankari, Verve Divas, both really rock some liquid pearls.  I really love the look.  It takes a steady hand and some serious patience to ornate their cards with this amazing product.  Since I am still working on patience and a steady hand I do not possess, I thought I would try to "faux" the look with tiny gold pearls that have adhesive backing.  I pull up the whole strip and press in place.  I framed the heart shape and added a few in other places for accent.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
