Another Monday, another wonderful Mojo Monday. I had such fun making this card but it took me forever.

All the designer paper is from a 6x6 Basic Grey-Cappella paper pad, I used a scalloped blade on my Fiskars trimmer to make the scalloped edges.

I used my decorative Flourishes Sizzlits to die cut the flourishes, I coated them with Versamark Dazzle then embossed with clear embossing power. Two layers of embossing powder on two different flourishes took forever but I love the sparkle created by the Dazzle under the melted embossing power (which of course does not show in the picture).

The phrase is from The Stamps of Life-friends4ever set, I edges the circle with Versacolor bamboo. I added Recollections pearls to some beautiful Prima Fancystix Flowers from the Nursery Tales Collection to finish. they are so pretty with the chunky glitter edges.

Supplies: Cream cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, The Stamps of Life-friends4ever, Prima-Fancystix flowers, Sizzits-Decorative Flourishes, Spellbinders-Lacey & Standard Circles, Recollections-Pearls, Versamark Dazzle

Have a great week.



  1. wow..and I do mean wow..Nina this card is beautiful. Love the colors ...talent ...talent. Need to learn this embossing stuff . You should win a prize for that card.


  2. Your card is gorgeous - I wish I could see your flowers better, they must fairly shimmer off the page, and a soft pearl is the perfect foil for them. I can see why this card took you a long time - loads of tlc in this. Good thing you're not doing it for money, you'd never get paid what you're worth.

    Proud of you!

    Love, Sis

  3. Your card is beautiful Nina! Wow!!
    i tried for the wow today but i didnt quite get there. i sure wish i could just lock myself away for a couple of hours but my little man knows when i'm gone.

    You asked about my flowers....i cut them out with the cricut and layered them putting them together with either Brads, rhinestones, pearls and buttons. I used the Accent essentials cartridge.

  4. Very pretty card, Nina. Your colour and DP choices make for a very soothing card.
