Got my Mojo back

I haven’t done a Mojo Monday sketch challenge for a few weeks. This looked like a pretty simple sketch and I figured I could whip a card up within 10 minutes. I found the patterned paper pretty quickly and then I searched for ribbon. I had 4 or 5 different ribbons out and I fiddled with them for about 20 minutes! Anyway, this is what I ended up with.
My card base is Taylored Expressions Choice Buttercream CS. It has a little bit of a yellow tinge. I added a layer of Mellow Moss, then the patterned paper. I coloured the flower from Stampin’ Up! Pretties Kit with a copic marker (G40). It turned out a little bit brighter than I wanted – I was hoping for a pale moss colour, but I didn’t feel like going over it again and I didn’t think I had the right colour anyway. I stamped the frame image from the Sale-A-Bration Vintage Labels set twice using Mellow Moss ink – once in the buttercream and again on Mellow Moss CS. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to place the sentiment in the centre and punched it out with a 1″ SU Circle punch. I punched out the moss image with the SU Scallop Circle punch. I popped up the sentiment with a dimensional and used a Pop-Up glue dot to adhere the flower to the card. I added a couple of self-adhesive half-pearls to the right side of the ribbon panel. I also used Always Artichoke CS for the small panels. I took the picture at night, so it is not as bright as I’d like, but I am happy with the way the card turned out. Thanks for having a look. I’m hoping to get my last swap cards done tomorrow and if I do, I’ll post them to the blog. Off to bed for me!
