MOJO257 ~ Thanks a Bunch!

Good morning!  Hope all is well in your corner of the world!  Today, I have another thank you card to share.  I'm TRYING to work with traditional card sizes...  This one is an A2 or 5.5 x 4.25 inches.  I took the opportunity to pull the Mojo sketch and create a card perfect for that special teacher...


And the sketch that inspired it all...


I created the flower by stamping two flower images from Verve's Bloom & Grow set, cutting them out, molding them with a stylus and stacking them with dimensional foam. I finished them off with a vintage looking brad. The leaves are also a Verve stamp, individually hand cut and applied to embellish the blossom. A few punched circles create my scallop topped with adhesive lace by Recollection. A pearl flourish, cut and strategically placed add a bit of feminine flair. Both the leaves and sentiment may be found in Verve's Great Friend set.

Thanks for stopping by! See ya next time!

Very pretty card. Love those papers and stamps you used.

great card. I love your cards (as you know) and it'd be great to see more in the traditional half-sheet/invitation size as that's the size I make. :)
BTW - you have been a completely horrible influence on me because today I used some of my fair money to buy the madison small window and the door at the art store! (I had to go there to see about supplies for one of my son's classes and saw them.) It all started innocently enough with one little spellbinders set won on this blog....
