Today marks the 400th Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.  It’s such an honor to be part of the Mojomaker Design Team and share a sketch to inspire your paper crafting each week.  Thank you, Julee Tilman, for giving me a shot when the original team began (Mojo Monday #68)!  If you promise not to giggle too much, here’s my first Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (#68) from January, 2009.

Where it all began!  This week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO400) goes back to the very beginning and is based on challenge #1!

STAMPIN’ PRETTY TIPS:

  • Luscious.  Gold heat embossing on Basic Black card stock looks so rich and refined.  The You’ve Got This stamp set (a new host rewards set) is perfect for it.

  • Did you know?  Stampin’ Up! host rewards  are available with on-line orders of $150 or more, not just parties!  Stock up or team up with a friend and order on-line!  Be sure to order on June 2 to qualify under the current (more free product) host rewards program.
  • I used a 2 1/2″ Circle Punch to crop the corner and tuck the “You’ve got this” sentiment behind (also heat embossed in gold).

  • The Basic Black layer is pumped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals to create 3-D shadowing around the sentiment.

  • Bohemian Designer Series Paper provides the dotted background and coordinates with the Delightful Dijon (a new yellow/gold Stampin’ Up! In Color) card base.
