Mojo 294

I enjoyed this sketch. I used a cutting plate from TE and removed the bottom part. I layered it over some patterned paper which seemed to mimic the circles in the cutting plate. I used sentiments from the new Verve set "Take Note". It has so many choices that it was hard to choose.

Holly's Graduation Card

I made this card for my daughter's graduation from the University of Missouri. Since she is a doctoral candidate, her robe has blue velvet stripes on the sleeves. Since this darling image from Taylored Expressions did not have the stripes, I added them using Royal Blue flocking from Sparkle n Sprinkle along with gold glitter for the accents.

The Rose

One of the workshops at the NSD crop was the use of Tombow water color markers. I was lucky enough to have had several prior one. Sandy Torok taught me the way to color this rose, so I stamped it again, embossed with gold tinsel glitter and colored on water color paper. I kept the card design simple so as not to take away from the beauty of the rose.

Bouquet of Lillies

This stamp from Taylored Expressions is one of their beautiful bouquets in vases. I have a friend who is very ill and she was in my thoughts as I designed and colored with copics. I hope it brings her some comfort.

The "Girls"

I was at the NSD weekend crop sponsored by Whim So Doodle in St. Petersburg and decided that this would be a good time to make some cards that would take a little more than usual time. These stamps from MFT are so darling, and coloring with copics when face and hair enter into the picture seem to take me some time, that they were a good choice. The sentiments brought several folks to mind so I am sure they will find good homes.

I don't usually play along with this challenge but I wanted to try a round card and this was my result!
