Mojo Monday 400 Celebration

Hi Everyone!

I know it's not Monday but our team "The Busy Bees Stampers" have been challenged by our awesome team leader Sandie to participate in the Mojo Monday madness.  This sketch is special to Julie because this was her very first sketch.  So to celebrate with her I am posting my first Mojo Monday card using Close To My Hearts' "Team Player" stamp set.  

This is this the Mojo Monday 400 sketch:

In addition to this very special Mojo Monday sketch, Julie is offering two spots on her design team and "I want to be a Mojo Monday designer"!
