Mom’s Day

I need to get this card sent off to my lovely MIL as soon as possible. I combined today’s Mojo Monday Week 137 challenge with last week’s Curtain Call Color Challenge. I started off with a totally different card, but was not at all happy with the way it turned out, so started all over again. I have to admit, I wasn’t thrilled with the sketch, but I think my Mojo was on vacation today. I started with Flourishes White CS for my card base. I added a layer of Melon Mambo as well as the patterned paper. I wish I had made my flower image a wee bit smaller so the patterned paper could show through a little more. I stamped the Spiral Bouquet flower from Papertrey Ink. on white CS using Melon Mambo, Certainly Celery and Chocolate chip. I layered that panel with Pink Pirouette and Melon Mambo. When I saw the sketch and the vertical panel, I immediately thought of using paint samples. I’ve had a bunch of them for ages. I layered the green paint sample onto Certainly Celery and tied some Melon Mambo polka dot grosgrain ribbon to the top. I stamped the frame from SU’s Vintage Labels in Chocolate Chip and used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to centre the sentiment from SU’s Blooming with Love set. I punched it out using the label punch and larger die. I finished the card off with some Melon Mambo colored self-adhesive rhinestones. That’s it for now. I hope to get a bit more Mojo tomorrow to do a few other challenges. Thanks for having a look.
