I'd Pick You

Happy Thursday, peeps!  Did y'all have fun taking our Diva Inspiration Blog Hop?  I know I got so inspired by all the projects.  If you haven't had a chance to hop around yet, you've still got until Saturday 2/5 to leave your comments.  Click here for my post, which also has the master hop list at the bottom.

When I was making my Mojo Monday 176 card earlier this week, I had another idea for just masking off the curve for a simpler one layer version and had to give it a go.  Of course I didn't stick to just one layer, but the concept itself is pretty clean and simple-ish.  This time I went with a square card and pulled out Dream Big.  I hand drew a curve, then cut out and lay down as a mask before stamping the greenery in Pear Pizazz and Wild Wasabi.  Then I pulled off the mask, stamped the large stem and the sentiment, then added a little Melon Mambo pompom trim to accent my curve.  Sorry for the poor photo - pinks and greens are always so hard to photograph.

I stamped the flower in Melon Mambo, then cut out and layered over the card, adding a button for the center and some pink liquid pearls to each petal.  The little flags are made with the fun Sentiment Flags die by Lil' Inker Designs.  I had some washi tape on my desk that matched the project, so I layered it onto white cardstock, then cut with the flag die and trimmed to different lengths, adding some 1/2 circles and some pear seam binding ribbon to accent.  My finished card size is 5" square.
