There's No One Like You

Hi Everyone!

Here is my card for yesterday's Mojo Monday. I really liked this sketch. It was easy to work with and I was very surprised how quickly my card came together. I used a softer color palette for this card, combining Kraft, Harvest Gold, Fine Linen with Perfect Plum and Pale Plum. These soft colors remind me of spring! I stamped the "Flower Pattern" Cling stamp from Hero Arts with Versa Mark ink and stamped it on the Pale Plum background piece. I embossed the flower from SU's "Fifth Ave Floral" with gold embossing powder and then used Copic Markers (Vo1, V12, V15, V17) to fill it in. I used Y11 around the edges to give it a little bit of a "glow". The Harvest Gold piece was embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder and then I paper pierced the edges of the Fine Linen piece in the center.
I was rather pleased with the final results of this card and I hope you like it too! I will enter this card into the following challenges:

1. Mojo Monday: Sketch 187

2. Cupcake Craft Challenge: Lots of Layers

3. Woodware USA: Die Cuts and Punches

Gorgeous mix of colors, Dori! Love how you added that pretty shadow around the main flower, too. It really makes it pop! Very pretty! :)
