Mojo Monday 238

I really enjoy playing along with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenges.   The sketch this week had me thinking outside the box.  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

I found some really neat paper at Michaels.  If you click on the picture, you will be able to see the subtle gold rose design on the creamy paper.  I scored the blocks and then sponged Peeled Paint Distress Ink over it to make it look like tiles.  I had just the right colour ribbon, gems and a flower to add to it.  The flower was placed on a square scallop.  I really like how this card turned out.
Thanks for stopping by!

Mojo Monday 237

I really like the current Mojo Monday sketch so I decided to play along.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

 The design paper is from First Edition - Spring Drop 6 x 6 paper pad which comes with some glitter effect papers as well as 2 sided papers.  The pads have 64 papers.  The butterflies were cut using my Creative Memories butterfly punch.  The card base is ivory and the square scallops were cut from the same ivory was the Recollections edge punch.  I layered the design paper and scalloped border onto pink and also used the same pink for my sentiment.  The sentiment is from Verve's stamp set - Great friend.  The flat back clear crystal and pink crystals are from my stash.  I like the way this card turned out.  I have not finished the inside as yet but will use some of the pink card stock, the border punch, another sentiment and some more of that gorgeous designer paper.

I ordered 4 different 6 x 6 First Edition paper pads from Scrapbooking Warehouse.  They are located in Grand Rapids Michigan.  I ordered them on Saturday, they shipped them Monday and they arrived on Thursday.  I paid a total of $41.72 and that included shipping.  I saved $2.00 on each of the 4 paper pads so the savings paid for the shipping fee. I am very pleased with the quality, colours, designs and how quickly these pads arrived.
