Citrus Mojo Monday 98



This little card uses the Mojo Monday 98 Sketch, and it's my take on the Gingersnap Creations GC17 Color Challenge, which is to use citrus colors. It also qualifies for my very first Pile It On challenge, which is to use at least 3 flowers and one other challenge of your choice (how fun is that?). The stamps are all from Stampin' Up!'s Bloomin' Beautiful set. I colored the image and some Hero Arts Artist's Flowers with Copics, and dabbed some Kiwi Kiss around the edges of the image panel with a sponge dauber. The patterned paper is from K and Company - there's actually a patterned paper on the bottom, then a patterned glittered vellum (same print) on top of that (hard to see in the photo!). The base cardstock is from SU! (Kiwi Kiss), and I used VersaMark watermark ink to stamp the "blossom" definition from the SU set repeatedly as a subtle background. I got the ribbon at A.C. Moore's. That's about it - not too complicated, this one :).

Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful card! I have a feeling the picture is by no means doing the card full justice. I wish I could see it in person.
