Everything's Gonna Be Alright

Hello friends! I had the day off today and since I haven't played along with Mojo Monday in quite a while, I thought I may give it a go. I broke out some of my favorite shabby papers, Vintage Summer Basics collection by Maja Design... and stamps from one of my favorite stamp companies...Verve to come up with this here:


I ultra distressed all of the edges and used some gold sewing thread on the inside perimeter of the floral panel. Hard to tell that it's floral since I covered up all the gorgeous flowers on it. :( The sentiment is from Verve's latest release...this one is called Let It Be. I added a vellum border punched with a Doily Lace punch from Martha Stewart and added just a bit of distress ink to make them stand out (not too much, though). I also added lots of Zva Creative pearls, cos they're my favorite. :)

Here's the sketch for Mojo Monday:
