Although majority of the challenges are just for fun, I can't help but love the weekly challenge over at Mojo Monday. The sketches are always so intriguing and fun to work with! Not to "toot my own horn" or anything, but the card I created this week for the challenge I feel is one of my best so far. I'm so happy with how it turned out! Here's this week's sketch:
And here's my take on the sketch:
It's hard to see in the picture (the second picture shows it the best) but the 'hello' sentiment is propped up on the card using an adhesive strip. I thought about making the background of the sentiment white, but I wanted to use my white iRock gems, so I stayed with black. After seeing the design I made an emergency Michael's run and purchased the flower embellishment as well as the ribbon I used for the bow. The decorative strip above the white rectangle is actually adhesive ribbon that I had from a set I recently purchased. For the bottom "lace" part of the card, I used many cuts of a decorative square die cut and layered them over one another to look like it was one piece, but actually the squares themselves are hidden under the white cardstock. Welcome to the creative mind of someone who doesn't own a Cricut! :)
