The Colors of Spring

Hi friends! It's Monday again already and time for another Mojo Monday sketch! This week's design is from my messy craft desk! {grin} Seriously, I spent most of last week's nap time and sleeping time planning the boys' birthday party and making all sorts of projects (water bottle covers, stickers for bottles of bubbles, treat favor bags, a happy birthday banner, cupcake toppers, noisemakers and table tent cards). Then we were running behind setting everything up, and people arrived and the party went so fast and I'm not even sure if we have pictures of it all. Might have to do a fake photo shoot of what's left. :)



Anyhow, amidst all of that I took a break early last week to do something with stamps (most of the party stuff was designing printables and assembling with die cuts) and this card is what came from that crafting session. These papers from the 5th and Frolic pad were calling my name... so springy and fun. I pulled out the Surely Goodness set and got inky! The banana layer and the white layer are randomly stamped with the largest flower from the set and I added the It is well sentiment in black. The flower is stamped three times. I cut the smallest by hand, die cut the middle layer (with the Goodness Flowers Die Set), then hand cut the largest layer and used a black Goodness Flowers die cut to mat it on. The border uses the circle scallops from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set and I used some of the circle punch outs from that die to mat the rhinestone trio in the bottom corner. A big fluffy double bow and the card was done.

I hope you have a fabulous start to your week. I'm going to take a little time to rest up from the sleepless week I had and then try to get back into the drawing room to design the next batch of Verve!
