Ahhhh, I had such wonderful time creating this card. I love it when I get time to create a card just because. I wanted to make a card for this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 172. I love these sketches, they work so well with all different kinds of cards. Here is the card I made this week .... .... .... ....
I punched a piece of Orchid Opulence cardstock with a MS punch (the latticey one) then slipped a piece of Old Olive cardstock behind the lattice part. Then I ran some Old Olive 1-1/4" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon around the card. Tilda was stamped on watercolour paper using StazOn black ink, then I coloured her with Stampin' Up! Markers and an Aqua Pen using a watercolour technique. Then it was time to cut her out. I used the "out of the box" technique and the largest round nestability. The black circle was cut using my Circle Cutter Plus. Here is a closer view of Tilda .....

I also did a bit of 3D-ing on the inside. I stamped the Old Olive swirl on Naturals White cardstock, then stamped the flowers in Orchid Opulence and Rich Razzleberry (stamped off once), cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals. A few Basic Rhinestones were applied to the middle of each flower.......
Bye for now ... ... ... Glenda Mollet
