I decided to play along with this week's MoJo Monday sketch when creating my card for the hop. Take a look at the sketch (and a little side note: It's MoJo Madness Contest Week, meaning there are even MORE Verve Prizes up for grabs over on the MoJo Monday blog!!). Here's a look at the sketch:
LinkLinkI created a super clean and simple hybrid version of the sketch for my card using a couple of my favorite Verve stamps:


Pretty soft and feminine for me, yeah? But I kinda dig it. All of the patterned paper is printed digi paper from the Beautiful You digi kit by Zoe Pearn (Sweet Shoppe). I heat embossed the three sizes of outline flowers from Great Friend with detail white embossing powder on light pink cardstock and cut them out, layering them with foam adhesive. I added a little flagged sentiment strip from Accent Notes and was done!

A few extra things I don't want to forget...
- October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we're doing our part to raise awareness. Verve has a special Think Pink SALE, with all in-stock stamps and dies 20% off October 1-16. And to sweeten the deal, Verve will donate 10% of proceeds from this sale to the Susan G. Koman For the Cure foundation!!
- A New month brings a new Stamp of the Month...Harvest Blessings will be 40% off during the month of October!! What a steal!

I never think to print out digi patterns. That would really make sense cause you could print just the amount you need. Thinks for the inspiration and eye candy.
