Dear Mother Nature. Do you see the flowers in this card? Would you mind skipping the mud season and cutting right to summer so we could see flowers like this in our gardens? You made winter so unbearable that I think it is only fair if you did this for us. I want flowers, blue skies and warm balmy breezes. Thank you so much!
I don’t know if she will listen to me. I have a feeling it will be a while longer before I get to see beautiful flowers such as these. They are from the stamp set called Secret Garden and they have matching Framelits. When you use bright colors such as these (Melon Mambo, Gumball Green & Pumpkin Pie) on Basic Black, it makes the colors pop out almost as if they are glow in the dark. The sentiment is from Really Good Greetings. Lastly I used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack and the Paper-Piercing Tool to add a little something different to this card.
Now let’s just hope I wake up tomorrow and it is sunny and 70 degrees outside. Wouldn’t that be nice!
Do you remember this set? It is called Lovely As A Tree and is the oldest stamp set in the current catalog. I don’t know when it first came out, but it has been current since I started stamping in 2006. Shelli Gardner, Stampin Up’s Founder says if she has any say in the matter, Lovely As A Tree will always be around.
This weeks challenge card from Mojo Monday was a little harder for me because it has a lot of stuff going on! There are scallops, and circles, and brads, and ribbons and bows! Oh My! Now I know you don’t have to put everything in there but I like to get it at least close to the sketch. Here is this week’s challenge:

Here is my card:

At first, I had it all going but I just couldn’t bring myself to post my creation. Finally I took off the bow and it seemed to work a lot better for me.
I made the pinwheel using the new Sizzlets Pinwheel S Die. It makes it so much easier then cutting it out yourself. It does take a little practice but if you follow my directions from THIS post, it is much easier.
