mojo monday/mojo486-happy day


I have used the Verve flower dies to create the felt flower and leaves....you can use any combo of flower dies to recreate something similar. The happy day card is a journaling card and I have added a fun sentiment sticker too. The background is watercolored and I added twine and a gem. Be sure to check out the mojo makers blogs to see what they have created with this weeks sketch.

The design team is showcasing non other than altenew...talk about fantastic florals! Don't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!




I had a blast with this weeks card, I used a fun tim holtz lattice stencil for the background, I am playing along with inspired by and I luv the contrast in the photo; tried to replicate it with my card. I used one single bloom and watercolored it with prima confection pans. The birthday sentiment is from a simon set and I added a few my mind's eye enamel dots. I did not have any altenew inks, but I may or may not have ordered more than half of them...aaannnnd I may or may not order the rest this week *grin*...I hear so much good about those inks, so I am giving them a try..cannot wait to share! Be sure to stop by the rest of the simon teams blogs and see what they have created!
