TSTR96, MOJO223, TLC330 and a Heartfelt Thank You!

I feel so blessed! Yesterday I was notified not once but TWICE that I had won a prize! Thank you so very much to the kind folks at Mojo Monday for selecting my card, Righteousness in Bronze as one of their Mojo 222 Sketch Champions! What a wonderful way to celebrate the day! And then the wonderful folks at Word Art Wednesday notified me I had won a random drawing for some fabbo stamps from Whimsy Stamps! I'm still smiling! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

So today I am popping in to show you a card I put together for a couple of challenges. This one will be entered in Mojo's 223 Sketch Challenge as well as The Shabby Tea Room's Vintage Boudoir Challenge. Take a few moments to check out the links below and please play along!

Here's the Mojo Sketch...

And for my entry...

I created the rolled rose by using a 1 1/2 inch wide swath of burlap. The total length was about 10 inches. The process is pretty much the same as a fabric rolled rose but burlap is much bulkier. I used a hot glue gun to adhere the material as I worked. As always thanks for stopping in and don't forget Saturday's Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light Challenge! It will be fun! Blessings...
