Happy Friday, friends! We're off to see the new Cars movie this afternoon, my son's first trip to the theater! What do you have planned for the weekend?
Before I go, I wanted to pop in and share a card I made with the Mojo Monday sketch using the colors at The Play Date Cafe. These were just the colors I needed for what I had in mind.
Patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Everafter collection and the Neutrals DSP collection from Stampin' Up!. I stamped flowers and leaves from Verve's Bloom and Grow set and cut them out by hand (although there are dies available, I don't have them yet). I added a few brown pearls to the flower centers and popped them up on foam dots.
The sentiment is from the same set, stamped on a die cut Nesties Label 18 that is sponged with tea dye. For the horizontal banners in the sketch, I die cut one banner from Vintage Cream cardstock and stamped it with text. For the other strip, I die cut a Victorian Lace border from Certainly Celery cardstock.
I couldn't decide what to do with the vertical strip in the sketch, and nothing I tried there was working. I finally decided to bend the rules a bit and add a pearl flourish, and I like how it turned out. My only concern is that the design might be a little top-heavy, so I may go back and add a pearl flourish in the bottom right corner. What do you think?
