MOJO243 & TSTR116 ~ Thanks a Bunch

Hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend! I know I spent a great deal of time catching up on the normal household chores. Hubby is scared silly because I actually cooked several times this weekend! :-) I did get a chance to catch a little nap or two plus I even got a few cards done! I've been in a sort of creative rut lately and absolutely NOTHING inspired me! :-( But I think the drought has broken... whew!!!

So today I am playing in a few challenges. The MOJO 243 sketch...


This week's challenge at The Shabby Tea Room asks participants to create something using white/cream, pink & blue plus flowers and a fabric element. The Shabby Tea Room inspiration photo "Color Me Pretty..."


And my interpretation...


The base is a scallop cut from Cricut's Winter Woodland cartridge. It is exactly 4.25 inches. I used the Spellbinders Standard Circles Large to cut the DP pink layer and trim the pattern strip to fit under the sentiment panel. The DP under the panel has touches of blue plus a hexagon with pink roses. It's kinda hard to see but it is there! I then layered on a white crochet medallion with the sentiment panel on top. The sentiment panel is actually a light blue doily fussy cut from one of the DP sheets in the Be Happy paper pad. I then stamped the sentiment (Verve) on it before adhering. For some sort touches I added a couple of pearl stick pins, one heart and one regular to the doily. I nestled a pink mulberry rose on a crochet piece and added a cream hemp bow before gluing it down. A few sprigs of greenery (MS paper punch) add s little zest. I also added some pearls (Recollections) to each scallop on the card. Very pretty and very tiny! The small cards are hard for a big handed girl like me to wrestle with!  Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time... blessings...
