Fabulous

 It's time for another Mojo Monday challenge, and since it's the first Monday of the month, that means it's a CONTEST week!  Play along for your chance to win a Verve set of your choosing!  Head on over to the Mojo Monday blog for the sketch and all the details, not to mention some fabulous eye candy from the design team.

For my sample card, I used some more of that Stella and Rose Mabel Collection paper.  I just love the colors and wanted to use this fun orange butterfly I found in my stash.  I had lots of fun with die cuts, using a flourish Sizzix die and the Notebook Edge die from MFT.  The little border along my triangles is the negative of that notebook edge.  So fun!

For stamping, I pulled out an old favorite, Love's Flower.  I noticed that the small flower fits really well in the flower punch from the SU Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack., so I stamped the small flower several times, colored with Copics, punched out, added some glitter/diamond glaze mixture and accented with orange bling from Pizzazz Aplenty.  I did the same with the larger flower, hand cutting a little border around it to match the others, then layered them over my circle and added the sentiment in Bermuda Bay.  A little bling on my flourish die cut and I was done.

Thanks to everyone who has left such sweet condolences on my grandmother's passing.  We spent the weekend surrounded by family, celebrating her life and putting her to rest.  Such a bittersweet time filled with much sadness, laughter and tears.  I'm still not feeling much like creating (thankfully I already had this card finished), so please forgive the silence here on the blog the next few days.

  2. Well, this is just beautiful! I love the way you used the "scrap" part of the die to make another border (that is what you did, right??). The colors are also fantastic. I'm sorry about your grandmother. I'll keep your amily in my thoughts and prayers.
