I haven't routinely played at Mojo Monday, but I really like the current sketch. This is the last challenge, as Julee needs more time with her kids. I was determined to make a card using my neglected Verve goodies & some printed paper.
Simple card that took me hours, but I'm so happy with the end result. The papers are MME Flair collection, the flowers are Verve New Beginnings & the sentiment is Verve Simply Amazing.
I added silver foil to the top layer of the die cut word & red Stickles to the Aqua Mist & Pale Peony flower centers. I cut 2 strips of gray textured cardstock to tie in with the Brilliance Starlite Black I used to stamp the sentiment. The center panel is stacked with a couple layers of cardstock--not quite as high as adding foam. I'm also entering SSS Monday & Word Art Wednesday.
There are always so many options for the PTI CAWU challenges during release week, but it was an easy decision to case Nichole's Day 2 card with the blended background behind the die cut panel. I love this release, but have got to use what I bought in my last order & that includes the wonderful striped die in Mix & Mat Flourishes.
Don't laugh too hard--gotta tell you what I did. Last night I carefully masked the front of a white card so my blending wouldn't go clear to the edge. This morning when I sat down to put the die cut panel on top, I realized the order of the inks (Hibiscus Burst, Terracotta Tile, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise) was upside down from what I had wanted. I could have just cut off the front of the card & attached it the right way to another card, but oh no--then I started thinking & debating about other changes! Finally, I did get the card put together & actually I like my final version better with adding the Summer Sunrise mat & Glitter Dust for a beautiful, soft sparkle.
The wooden embellishments are Studio Calico--fun for a change instead of sequins or gems. I'm also entering Seize the Birthday, SSS Monday & Word Art Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
