Mojo Monday 181 - CONTEST

Welcome to another month of Mojo Monday!  It's the first Monday of the month and that means it's time to kick off our March CONTEST! {For those of you new to Mojo, we just play for fun most weeks, but the first sketch of every month is our Mojo Madness contest with prizes for our top picks.} Are you ready to play? 

The Prizes: We'll have one winner for every 50 entries, up to a max of SEVEN winners!!! Winners will receive the Verve Stamps set of their choice.

How to play: Just upload a project using this week's sketch to your online blog or gallery. Then leave a link to your project in the linky widget at the bottom of this post.  If you upload to online galleries, please also use tag/keyword MOJO181. Our challenge is open to everyone, Verve stamps are NOT required to participate, and you can enter as many times as you want.

Deadline: The linky entry widget will close at 8PM MT {Click here for time conversion} on Sunday, March 13, so all entries need to be in before then. Winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 16.

Julee's SampleFor my card I went with borders, butterflies and bling, but feel free to make the flower and flourishes any shape, stamp or embellishment you want. I love the way the sketch can be dressed up or down to suit your style. As always, borders are completely optional. For more about my sample card, you can check it out on my blog, Poetic Artistry.
We hope you'll play along with us and link up your cards using this week's sketch. If you don't have a specific shape, feel free to substitute. The important thing is to have fun and get stampy!

And to get your mojo kickstarted this morning, here are samples from the Mojo design team:
