... Mojo Monday #429

Hello there everyone,

I have a card for you today that I made for the Mojo Monday Challenge #429.

Here is the sketch.

I decided to use one of my favourite stamps sets from Power Poppy for the focal image. It is called Daffodils. I love both the images from this set but chose to use the larger one for this project.

I began with a white card base over which I added a piece of pattern paper cut with Spellbinders 5x7 Matting Basics B in the largest size.
Over this I added the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles Two in white. I actually needed to cut off the bottom as I did not want it to poke out past the ribbon. Over this I added the yellow and white polka dot ribbon.

I stamped my focal image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured it with Copics in the colours shown below. Then, for some reason madness struck me and I decided to fussy cut out the entire image! Now, I am really happy that I did!

I cut a circle from white card stock using the Spellbinders Stately Circles die and then popped this up over the ribbon with the focal image popped up on the circle. All that time and effort doing the fussy cutting really pays off, at least I think so. :)

Lastly I added two wee pearls to the "pins" holding the bouquet together and three more at the top. 

The sentiment is from Power Poppy stamp set Lavender and I really like it as I think it is so useful for so many different types of cards.

Thank you so much for visiting with me today and leaving me your comments as I always smile when I read them. Have a wonderful day. Cheers.



  1. Ohhhh, look how pretty! My heart goes pitter patter. Wonderful coloring of that beautiful bouquet, and love the die cuts and soft blue designer paper. One of my favorite sentiments, too. Very nice, Melanie!
