MFTWSC85 - Happy Birthday

My card is made based on this weeks My Favorite Things weekly sketch challenge 85.  I flipped the sketch to go with the image. The image is from ALM-Go For the Gold, based on the Olympics, but I thought of the torch as a big candle so I made a birthday card using the image.  I paper-pieced the torch and her outfit and colored her with Copics. I think she looks pretty cute  The sentiment is from MFT Birthday Balloons Jolinne set.  The card base is SU Kraft CS.

MojoMonday 253 - A True Friend

This is a card I made for this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  I love the slanted panels on the sketch, it is a great sketch and fun to play with.   All the center panels and flower are raised on dimensionals.  I inked the edges of the square, oval and the flower layers.  Had to add the flower made with Verve's Floral Circles dies and a SU punch, with a SU brad in the center. I love making flowers and adding them to my projects. I used the SU Bird punch for the leaves and the Martha Stewart fern punch.
I appreciate you visiting my blog and leaving comments.  Have a great day.

Mojo Monday 252 - Anniversary Wishes


I am playing along with this week's MOJO Monday sketch which is square or round.  I chose to do a square card and use monochromatic colors, black & ivory older K& Co. paper pad (although it looks white in the photo).  I used Verve's Floral Circles dies to make my flowers. I crumbled the layers and inked the edges with black ink. The centers are black brads by Recollections.  The flowers, center panel and sentiment panel are all raised on dimensionals.  I embossed the Very Vanilla flagtail strip with the SU dots EF. The leaves are SU sizzlet die.
