Bunco in July

A new week, a new set of crafting.  The ladies over @ NAC, are taking the summer off.  A bit of a break.
So, I went surfing the internet to find some inspiration.  And I found some! The super talented ladies over @ Mojo Monday, have this week's sketch up.  And, it's their 300th sketch!  Yahoo!

When I first started blogging, I would play along in the Mojo Monday challenges almost every week.  I love how their sketches allow you to get creative, and help  nudge you along.  And, well, I still love using their sketches!  I may not participate every week, but I always look, and find inspiration from their design team.
here is their sketch, #300:

when I saw this sketch, I fell in love.  You can do so many different theme/style cards, with this sketch, aka: very user friendly {smile}.
I am sending my Bunco group their reminder cards this week, and I'm using this sketch!

I used Stella Rose pattern paper, for this card.  I used sage shadow card stock from Stampin' Up! (retired) for the card base, and for the matt for the circle.  I used early espresso cardstock from Stampin' Up! for the main panel matt, and for the text pattern paper matt.  I used the You're Cherished (retired) stamp set for the sentiment.  I stapled a scrap piece of crochet trim to the banner, instead of the flower.
I really like how these cards turned out.  They aren't my typical style.  I'm more of a shabby-chic style, instead of a bohemian style.  But, I think these cards look pretty good.  This card is my 'sample' for the rest of the set.  I need to make 11 more and get them out in the mail.
If you get a chance to play along with the wonderfully talented ladies over @ Mojo Monday, please do.
They are celebrating their #300 sketch, and they are giving away quite a few prizes!

If we play Bunco together, look for this reminder card in the mail {smile}.

this card is now for sale in my Etsy shop, here
