Hello! I hope this finds you having a wonderful weekend. We are having beautiful weather here in the mountains, high 80's with a breeze. It doesn't get much better than that. Remember back in the winter when I was whining about the snow? No more whining!
Today I am sharing my card for Mojo Monday 196. Nothing like sliding in at the last minute to get a challenge done before the next one is announced. I used one of the sentiments and some of the leaves from the Verve Bloom and Grow set along with the coordinating Elegant Leaves die to create the focal point for my card. I embossed the leaves two times with clear powder onto some print paper from the Prima Madeline collection. I will be so sad when I use up this paper and don't have it anymore. I know, I should buy another 6 x 6 pad and hoard it. :) The sentiment was stamped onto a Nesties labels 4 panel in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and then layered to a white shimmer labels 4 panel. The die cut leaves were layered with one under the labels 4 panels and one above. I was trying to capture the look of the leaves in the print paper. To finish everything off I added some Prima flowers, twine and rhinestones.
After I had completed this card, I noticed that the last card I made for a Mojo Monday was in similar colors. Oops!
I promise, I will brighten it up a bit with my next project!
