Floral Mojo

This morning I attempted to get my mojo fix early only to have the power go out. So I had to wait till I got back from my 500+ mile drive! If you want to check out the sketch you can visit http://www.mojomonday.com/. Usually when I see a square sketch I think bigger, but this one struck me as a love note card size.

The centerpiece is the sizzlet die Flower Blossom cut in bermuda bay, attached to whisper white and trimmed with scissors. I just love that loose and loopy flower style. A large rhinestone brad finished it off nicely.

Background strips are whisper white stamped with a flower from Easter Blooms. I used the Bermuda Bay ink and stamped twice before re-inking. Polka-dot ribbon in melon mambo is the final touch.

A simple, quick card that would tuck nicely in a gift with it's finished size of 3"x3". And yes, Stampin Up! does have a coordinating size envelope called the Mini Square (#107309) in case you're like me and won't make a card unless it is the right size for an envelope!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Tasha,

This turned out really cute and I really like that flower too!!! It was the closest thing I found to the one on the Bigz die we used at Regionals last year!!!

Yes, Heather, I've been itching to use that die since you bought it! Thanks for sharing. :)

You may say it's simple and quick, Tasha, but I could never dream it up! Lovely, especially since it helps with a similar floral cut I got. Thanks.
Cool cardin',

Glad you like it, Eugene. I thought of you when I was using that sizzlit! Now maybe you'll can use your machine a little more. :)
