Verve Visual MOJO168

 Another fabulous sketch this week by Julee (MOJO168) - she has some of the BEST sketches!  I also received some new stamps this week and HAD to get them inky!

I went for a vintage look - how did I do?  I love the look of vintage, but I'm not very good at actually "doing" it!

I stamped the text background (If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you. -Winnie the Pooh) from Text Objects repeatedly on Basic Grey's manila lined paper.  I also stamped the dashed and solid line in pink - REALLY hard to see, but if you look close, you can see it in the close up picture.  Ah...pure love!  I then used the smaller sized heart from the same stamp set and stamped it 3rd generation randomly on the paper.  I distressed all the edges and sponged them with VersaMagic Jumbo Java.

The main sentiment is from another Verve Stamp Set from the olden days - Beautiful You (very unique set, first year commemorative set by the design team); anyway, it was just the perfect finishing touch!

I added a PTI Sweet Blush button tied off with Chocolate Baker's twine that is usually chocolate and white, but I changed the white to tan using my Copics.  :D

Added a strip of crocheted pink ribbon, 5 blush pearls and that's a wrap.  BTW, I love how this turned out; I think I know the perfect person to give this card to on Valentine's Day!

Hope you've had a great week; thanks for popping in!  Hugs, ~M.
