Out of My Comfort Zone!

You probably heard my moans and groans this morning as I was looking at this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  Now I am entirely linear in my layout style.  I mean a ruler is my best friend as I attempt to straighten something that is a 32nd of an inch off square.  So imagine my angst when I saw the large rectangle element sitting at an angle!  Agh!

However, I have vowed to work with some online sketches even if I have to take those dreaded steps out of my comfort here is my project for this week.

I used two of the Picture my Life cards included in the Florence paper packet (X7208B).  These cards, intended for use in pocket scrapbooking projects, also work wonderfully on cards like this one or journaling blocks in your normal scrapbooking. The large embellishment was cut with the Ornate Blossom Thin Cut ((Z3227) and stamped with an image from the Ornate Blossoms stamp set (D1687).  

Other Close to My Heart products used include:
White Daisy cardstock (1385)
Shinhan markers (Carmine, Peacock Green and Marigold--although I think I should have used Golden Yellow)
Say it All stamp set (C1632).  This is a hostess only set available until July 31st.
Florence Sequins (Z3213)
Momento Black Ink

Just for fun, here is another card I made with the stamp set.  Reminds me of the coloring books popular right now.

  1. Love the Florence paper and you did a good job with the sketch!

  2. Great colour combo on the first and pop of colour on the second. Well done times two :) Thanks for joining us at Mojo Monday.
