Quote, Mojo, and a Trigger!

Happy Thursday, everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I still have my tree up.  I usually do not take it down until after the new years, but I am thinking I may take it down early this year just to get the house straight.  Anyway, I have a card to share with you today using some Verve and something NEW.  I won some blog candy last week and was sent this wonderful package from ( Lynn Darda "From My Bungalow").  You can read about my win here.  Woo Hoo!  

Anyway, I got this really cool kit.  I looked through the goodies and found these cool 4 X 6 transparencies that I just thought would make some really cool overlays to a card front.  The one I chose to use for this card has some stitching on it(luv that), flourishes, and little tabs with Live, Laugh, and Love already there.  All I had to do was stamp a Verve sentiment over it using Staz On ink.  I am using Verve's Words of Wisdom stamp set.  I used a mixture of a black and a purple ink only because my black Staz On pad is about dried out and my refill is empty.  It has been awhile since I drug out the Staz On I am thinking.  So, I stamped it and laid it over the card front. I used adhesive under the ribbon portion so it does not show through. I did feel the need to add a big honking bow and layer some of the From the Heart die set for a fun accent.  I am using the Mojo221 Sketch and the Inspiration picture from this week's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!  
Blessings for a Wonderful New Year!
