Mojo Monday sketch 216 card! I finished them this weekend, but posting got away from me. I really love this card sketch, too!
I started with the color combo from the Heart 2 Heart color challenge earlier this month: Juniper, Autumn Terracotta, and Bamboo. I only used White Cardstock on this card. Each piece is stamped with textures and images from the new Rock the Block special stamp set, then distressed and sponges with inks in those three colors to create the different textures. I LOVE that stitched wide ribbon from the new Green Ribbon Rounds!
The large flowers were fun to make. I took a large solid flower image, inked it in Autumn Terracotta, them pressed the inked stamp to the Polka dot background image to add a light polka dot texture to my flower base. Then I added a second layer of flower petals with pop dots. There wasn't a five petal flower in the set, so I cut out individual petals from an eight petal flower image that I had inked, stamped off, then rolled in the same Autumn Terracotta ink color for more depth.
A few Mocha Opaque pearls and a sweet Friendly sentiment, and my card was complete...completely ready for the Moxie Fab Celebrating Relationships Challenge! National Girlfriends' Day isn't until August 1st, but I think I need to send this one off sooner! Only a girlfriend can appreciate such a girlie flowery card!
Ok - meetcha back here tomorrow for a Crafty Holiday gifty!
