Happy Monday,

I have not spent a great deal of time in my craft room this past week, it was nice to sit down and play a little. Thank goodness for Mojo Mondays :)

Today’s Sketch.
My try,

I did this card is pieces then hoped that I could tie it all in. I started with the base layer and worked my way up. Once I had the second and third layer pieced together I added the ribbon.

The little ribbon flower was made with my mini Bowdabra. I was going for a multi-looped bow but once I had cut and shaped it I thought it resembled a small flower more, so I added the little pearl brad to complete it.

I stamped the sentiment and flower with Versacolor-Pinecone then embossed them with Liquid Glass embossing powder. I used embroidery floss in place of twine then added lots of pearls to finish.

Supplies: Cream, brown and textured tan cardstock, Designer Paper- Anna Griffin, Close to my Heart-Thank you, TPC Studio-Spring Break, misc ribbon, Recollections pearls, Making Memories pearl Brad, Spellbinders.

Have a great week.



  1. I know you worked in zoom zoom mode and even dealt with some lil emergency there in the background. Its a wonder your thumb did not get glued in there. How the heck do you do this and have it come out like it could grace the pages of Martha Stewart. Hmmm?
