MOJO76 -- Fabulous Flowers



Better late than never! This card is my take on MOJO76 from last week! While my intentions were to create (and post) this card last week, my MOJO just wasn't flowing! Let's also throw in a few distractions soccer practice, birthday parties, etc. and before I knew it the week was over!

My true inspiration behind this card is from Laura Fredrickson. She is one of my favorite designers whom I love to stalk! Her card using the Fabulous Flowers stamp set can be seen here. When I saw her card it took my breath away. So when I saw last week's MOJO76 sketch, I thought that this set would be perfect!

I first stamped the flower image three separate times using pink passion ink. I then cut each image out and stickled each of the layered petals. Once dry, I cut each image out and layered each flower using dimensionals. I added the rhinestones for added bling to complete the look. Can see the rub-on in the lower right hand corner? The rub-ons are from last year's SU sale-abrations promotions. TFL!

Paper: Bella Rose DP, Raspberry Tart DP, kiwi kiss, rose red
Stamp: Fabulous Flowers
Ink: Pink Passion
Accessories: Stickles, kiwi kiss ribbon, Kaiser rhinestones, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder, dimensionals, Nestabilities
