Mojo Monday/MOJO319-Unto Us

Good morning, it is time for the Mojo sketch and I am up on the Verve Blog sharing my "Shape Up" Diva Dare. I wanted to make a Christmas card using one of the mazing sentiments from the Verve set Unto Us. I think these sentiments are perfect for Christmas cards. I added a glitter filled heart using the verve set Chevron Love, I cut it with the Jotted Heart Die by Verve. I used distressing(one of my favorite ways to embellish) and washi tape strips. I stamped the sweet arrow on a ticket, it is also from the Verve Chevron Love set and clipped it with a tiny clothespin. What a fun dare this month, I cannot wait to see what you create! Hope you have a super day...enjoy!
