MOJO242, TSTR115 & SSIC140 ~ The Future

Happy Tuesday!  Can you believe the work week is almost half over?  I am looking forward to that nice long Memorial Day weekend, aren't you? 

Today I am popping in after a considerable dry spell to share a challenge card.  This time I actually was able to combine THREE challenges.  That is quite the feat since my creative energies have been at "low tide." 

So here it is...

This card is based on this week's Mojo Monday sketch...

And the inspiration photo "Garden Party" at The Shabby Tea Room...

The sentiment I selected is in Our Daily Bread Designs' Dreams set. I chose a soft blue Bazzill base and added a distressed floral print DP by Prima (Fairy Belle). I embossed/distressed a white panel of card stock adding soft touches of pink distress ink to the edges. Pinking shears added a bit of interest to the floral panel on top. The gingham sentiment panel was included in a lilybeedesign paper pad, Double Dutch. A bit of white lace and blue seam binding are tucked in behind the panel. A couple of pink pearl flourishes, white glittered rose and blue mulberry roses finish off the corner spray! So glad I finally came up with something I LIKE! It's been a while... lol... But aren't we always hard on ourselves? Have a wonderful and blessed day! Until next time...
