I have been unsuccessfully chasing (not catching) my mojo for over a week. SIGH.
This morning, I saw the current Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #245 Color Isolation challenge, and poor mojo peeked out from under the couch. I can do this.
A very literal interpretation, but it turned out beautiful. I fussy cut the carnation, used second generation stamping on the leaves and die cut those. I added a few Swarovski Aurora Borealis crystals, and they really pop in person (so hard to photograph).
Thanks for stopping by!

Your mojo obviously came back Kathy, as this card is just stunning! Love how you kept the color of the one carnation soft instead of bold. as it pops just as much as bold colors do! Lovely, lovely card!! :0)
