Just Because ... Because it's a Blog Challenge Entry!

Pin It


Today's card project was created for the July edition of Poetic Artistry's "Mojo Madness" blog challenge. For more details on Julee's challenge, or to see the sketch I followed, click HERE.

I made a tiger lily using pink Prism card stock, shading with Twinkling H2O's, then dotted the petals with a Zig marker. The leaves and the stamen were created using Bazzill cardstock in "Ivy."

I stamped my sentiment with "Timber Brown" ink on Xerox 110# card stock, cut it out and embossed it using the smallest die from "Megabilities" Long Classic Rectangle set. I matted the sentiment on a scrap of pink die-cut card stock and, using black dimensionals, adhered the matted sentiment to Bazzill card stock and cut a border using a Fiskars punch.

I matted my flower, added three ribbon brads from Hot Off the Press, and finis!

Thanks so much for sharing part of your busy day with me; YKYR!
