Hello Peeps,

Happy Monday... again. I think the only thing I like about Mondays is the chance to do Mojo Monday. Today though I think the effort I put into this card was way way more then it needed to be. I have glue stuck to everything, itty bitty pearls were flying and bit and pieces cover just about every surface :).
Here is today's sketch.

My sister made me these beautiful tatted flowers, I think they fit this card beautifully. I added a pearl in each of the petals to add a little bling, I even managed something close to a macro shot.

I know I missed parts of the sketch but well..... Any hoo, the double sided designer paper is very pretty, and there are very nice red flowers in it that really don't show up well in this picture.

Supplies: Cream and rust/brown cardstock, Designer Paper-K&Company, Tatted Flowers-Barbara Derksen, Amuse-Pearls, Impression Obsession- Sending you Smiles, Spellbinders-Lacey Circle, Stampin’ Up!-misc circle punches, misc ribbon.



  1. You did a beautiful job Nina...as always :)
    I sure wish I hadn't packed my stuff up but I did the best I could with the time I had and the supplies I had.
    I had to use scotch tape folded in a loop for my flower so i could try and have it pop up...ah well it was fun.

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  2. M'Gosh M'gosh you make them tatted flowers look mighty appealing Mrs Neens. I may even get a hankering to pick up a shuttle again if you keep n like this. They would be pretty inked too, don't you suppose?

    *beaming from ear to ear* Lovely card. It was a hard one today.


  3. This card is absolutely gorgeous!!! All that effort paid off!


  4. wonderful awesome beautiful job ..what more can I say or add ...Nina you are so talented ..thanks for sharing.

  5. Well worth the effort! The tatted flowers are fabulous - not something that I have tried. I have tried crochet flowers, but they don't look so neat. I love the open design. Lynn x

  6. The time you spent adding all of those pearls to the card was worth the effort...its a beautiful piece. Each tiny pearl added something special to this card.

  7. This is very elegant!! Love those flowers - fantastic work :) Thanks for joining us at Mojo Monday!
