MOJO Monday 229 in Pinks and Brown

I love making layouts with multiple strips of paper like this sketch from MOJO Monday #229. I paired it up with the color challenge from from Fashionable Stamping #15,  "Monochromatic plus one other colour." I used pinks and brown.

I chose to make today's MOJO Monday card by cutting out some of the stripes from one sheet of patterned paper. I chose the fattest ones. I decided to match them up with a really dark brown from Bazzil scrap that I've had a while. I used a Cuttlebug folder, Mary Ann, to emboss that brown piece. 

This stamp set from Verve has one of my favorite verses. I hope it will encourage a friend who needs to know this truth.  God wants to prosper us in so many areas - financially, emotionally, physically, and in relationsips. What a hopeful thought!  The 2nd sentiment is also from Verve, "Joy for the Journey."

Paper - DCWV "The Sweet Stack" ; CTMH White Daisy CS; Bazzil (brown)) CS
Stamps - Jeremiah 29:11, Joy for the Journey
Ink - Ranger Vintage Photo, CTMH Hollyhock
Other - CTMH Mocha adhesive pearls, dotted organdy ribbon from Chocolate Collection (retired); Cuttlebug "Mary Jane" embossing folder
