Mother's Tulips...MOJO96

What a great Monday!!! Seriously...I had a tiring day, but for some reason I was completely inspired to make this card for my Mom's birthday next week. The MOJO sketch (MOJO96) definitely stirred up my mojo!! LOL I absolutely LOVE the layout! It ended up being perfect for this card :)

After I created the main image, I found the DSP I wanted to use - Razzleberry Lemonade! While it doesn't have Pomegranate in the design, I thought it looked awesome with my tulips, so I went with it :) I thought there was too much space behind the three matching panels to go with plain cs, so I used some linen I picked up at WalMart for just over a dollar the other day. I hand-stitched it on the cs and frayed the edges, which used up the white space perfectly.

I used two different stamps to create the sentiment - PTI, Quilter's Sampler and Wishing You. They fit beautifully on the main panel (thank goodness because I stamped them last :O). Lots of dimensionals later, and the ribbon formed into a bow...I had assembled my card. I LOVE how it turned out! The style is sooooo "my mother"! I hope she likes it...and isn't keeping up with my blog! Ha ha

Hope you had an equally AWESOME Monday, and an even better week!!

Supplies are listed in my SCS gallery :O)
