Mother’s Day Card – PTI Make it Monday #245 Color Isolation


pti make it monday 245 mothers day

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!
