Gerde's June Digi goes Mojo

Yes, I'm still using the Mojo Monday Sketch.  I am determined to win this challenge and I'm also going to dust today (maybe in my dreams!)  Yesterday I received Gerde's June Digi and my first thought was 'the gingham dog and calico cat'.  I did a little research because I couldn't remember the poem about the two. It's not a very pleasant poem, as the dog and cat in the poem tear each other to shreds.   Rather than going to the dark side with my card, I decided to make it a happy card suitable for any number of occasions.  

I scalloped the bottom edge of the front card base to blend the embossing pattern,  rounded corner of the sketch and the scalloped square.  Then I also added a green scalloped edge to the inside of the card base so it would show at the bottom and to liven up the inside a bit.  The dog, cat, and heart(a CTMH stamp) are all paper pieced.  The front sentiment and bling are CTMH.  I added whiskers to the cat with a fine marker.  (All cats have whiskers, except one of my childhood pets who fell victim to my scissors.  I started crafting at an early age, not always successfully.)  My I'm feeling witty!  My apologies.

Here are the challenges I am entering today:
Sailing Pineapple Challenge #5 - All Creatures Great and Small 
Cutie Pie Challenge #70 - Emboss It, but keep it Cute
Digi Sketch Challenge- Sketch and/or Theme...Use a Stamp
Love to Scrap Challenge #31 - Mind Your Banners!

Perhaps dusting would bring me luck.  I could give it a try.  The worst that could happen is that I'd obliterate an important note or phone number written on one of the tables. 

OK so I dusted, vacuumed, and mopped the kitchen floor.  Then made fish for dinner so my house doesn't smell like Spic and Span.  Maybe tomorrow I'll make a few more Mojo cards to increase my odds of winning.  Nah, enough is enough.  Mom and I are headed to the mall!
