I finally got a chance to play along with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge again! I was afraid that I wasn't going to be able to do one again this week, because the boys and I are spending the afternoon with Pam and her son Garrett later today. We're going to see the new Transformers movie, then going out to eat. Pray for me and Pam...a whole day with three crazy boys, and I don't think if I have enough Valium to keep us both medicated for that long! LOL! Okay...on to the card!

I started with a Crushed Curry Cardstock base, then matted the additional layers in Rich Razzleberry Cardstock. The patterned papers were from the Razzleberry Lemonade Designer Series Paper pack, and the images and sentiment were from the SU set "One of a Kind". The flowers were stamped onto Watercolor Paper with Basic Black Craft Ink, then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. They were then colored with Classic Ink Pads and an Aquapainter, cut outwith CutterBee Scissors, then attached to the focal panel using Dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped in the same manner as the flowers, only it was stamped onto Crushed Curry Cardstock. It was punched out with the Large Oval Punch, and the mat was punched out with the Scallop Oval Punch. Three starbursts were stamped down the side of the card base in Crushed Curry Classic Ink, then Pink Brads were added to the centers. I also added a piece of 5/8" Maize Grosgrain Ribbon to the focal panel, and some Fine Lace Stickles to the centers of the blooms to complete the card.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I will see you all again tomorrow! Until then...

Mercy I just love this. You are so amazing with your watercoloring. You have a serious skill that surpasses most. The colors on the card are just gorgeous. I'm really liking that new yellow. Love the brad treatment too. Great job.

Not sure how we'll handle three rowdy boys tomorrow. Think if we left them somewhere someone would pick them up? LOL!!

Love those two colors together. The curry is such a rich yellow. Embossing thos flowers really pops them out. Lovely! {{{hugs}}}

Good luck tomorrow. Full battle gear ladies.

Gorgeous card Mercy! Love your colours and your colouring.
Went to see transformers last Friday with one of my sons. Wow!! It was even better than the first one. The bonus is, it will keep the boys quiet for 2.5 hrs at least!
Well done on winning Julie's stamp set too! Have a great day with Pam! Say 'Hi' for me!
