Mojo Monday Sketch 239

Well, I finally got around to doing this week's Mojo card!  It's been such a challenge to find time to be crafty now that we have TWO little ones in the house! I had to come up with my idea, collect all my supplies one evening and then today I stole just enough time to put it all together - it only took me three days to make one card - lol!!  I used this week's Mojo sketch to make an anniversary card for my parents who will celebrate theirs next week.  I used Bazzill cardstock, Stampin' Up patterned paper and frame stamp.  The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and the satin ribbon came from  I embellished the frame stamp with some teeny tiny pearls I got from our local craft store.  I used ink from Amuse Studio - I love their ink pads because they are more like a chalk ink, so the color is rich and smooth.  As usual, I inked everything up first before putting it together - I just love distressing:)  Now if I could just find time to get started on Baby Andrew's scrapbook - he's 8 weeks old tomorrow, so I better get crackin' on it!  Have a great week everyone:)
