Hi everyone! Welcome to another week! It's the last Monday of the month, so that means it's my favorite time over at Mojo Monday... round or square sketch week! I just love making non-traditional sized cards. For those of you who wonder, I usually keep the sizes of my circle and square cards 4.25" and under so they fit in regular A2 envelopes. For circle cards, the largest scallop circle Nestabilities are just under 4.25", so they're just perfect. My Mojo158 sample card for today features the Great Friend set from Verve.
The paper is from the Olivia collection by Bo Bunny. I cut the shapes for the sketch, then stitched a little ribbon to ruffle and run across my two horizontal panels. Next up I used the slight embossed line around my DP circle as a guide to make a dotted frame around the edge with an early espresso marker. This circle is matted with a groovy guava circle embossed with swiss dots and sponged with groovy guava. For the flower accent, I stamped the medium and small outline flowers from Great Friend onto patterned paper, cut out and layered, then embossed one more small flower on vellum, rubbed it with some groovy guava ink and layered on top to soften the effect a little.
That sunburst in the flower center is an absolutely gorgeous embellishment from Pizzazz Aplenty. I just love how sparkly it is - Mark even commented on its coolness factor, so that's saying something! :) Then I just finished off the card with the for you sentiment from Great Friend stamped in early espresso and three little 3mm clear rhinestones, also from Pizzazz Aplenty.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous start to your week!
