Anyway, I have been super-addicted to the Chantilly Paper Packet lately. I think it is the springy colors that have me craving warmer weather here in the Midwest. It will come, it will come!
Here is my entry for Mojo Monday #283...
And here is the sketch...
You can get the bling gems I used for the center of this flower in the While Supplies Last area of my CTMH website right now for a steal! Hurry though, because when they are gone, they are GONE! Did you know they can be colored with permanent markers or our Alcohol Ink Markers? Yep!
I love how this flower turned out. I am usually very careful to not mix my inks on my ink pads, but I just HAD to try this out. I inked up the flower stamp from the Hello Love My Acrylix in Buttercup Ink first, then rolled the edges in the Cotton Candy Ink before I stamped it! Isn't it gorgeous tipped like that? The cut for this flower as well as the rest of my cuts on this card are on the Close to My Heart Cricut Artiste Cartridge.

I have been trying out some different things with ribbon lately. I used this Sweet Leaf Grosgrain ribbon for leaves by folding it in half lengthwise after cutting the end at an angle. Glue dots easily hold it in place. The little Birthday sentiment is found on one of the My Acrylix sets that is included with the Cricut Artiste Collection! I love this one! I stamped it in Blush Ink onto the shape that my Expression 2 cut out so nicely for me. I am sure glad you can see through all of our stamps to line it up just right. ;)
I really wanted the shadows of this beautiful doily cut to show through for depth, so I popped it up with my foam tape.
The blank space at the top of the card was absolutely stressing me out for some reason. I wanted to remain true to the sketch, so I left it out for the Mojo entry, then added some carefully trimmed Sparkles Flourishes after I was finished, lol! Now my brain can rest! ;)
