Two card

Greetings on this beautiful Monday to everyone!  I'm beginning to think I blinked and missed spring but I'm still loving this warmth and sunshine.

I ventured to my craft room this afternoon to make a card for Michael for his birthday tomorrow.  Well....I knew I hadn't gotten to play with the PPA 36 color challenge and it was Monday which means a new MOJO no card for Michael.  Actually I do have one that I've already made but it was not  my favorite and was going to make another.

This turned out to be a nice springy colored card.  Thanks Pals for challenge.  Want to play?  Click here.  For the layout, I used the new MOJO sketch, check it out here.

Stamps:  Flower Fancy
Paper:  Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Lavendar Lace & watercolor paper
Ink:  Staz-on Brown, Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, Lavendar Lace & Sahara Sand
Accessories:  brads, oval nestabilities, ribbon, blender pen

I tried something a little different for this card.  I stamped my flower image on watercolor paper and then used my blender pen and ink to color the flower and leaves.  I liked the end result.  I used a little bit of Sahara Sand ink to give the image a little shadow.  For the brads, I cut off the prongs and attached them to the card via glue dots.  I didn't want the prongs to show on the inside of the card. 

Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!
