mojo monday/mojo482-hb

hello friends, it is time for the mojo monday sketch. It is a five monday month and julee changes it up a bit with a different shaped sketch. This week it is a square sketch, although I kept mine a2. I have used the verve jotted heart die for my heart shape and then sticker letters for the cute hb sentiment. The polka dotted stripes are washi tape and then I used mustard seed ink by tim hotlz for the watercolor splash background. A few gems and twine bring it all together....have a super great monday!
