Going Back In Time...

Happy Friday!  Am I the only one thinking that January is buzzing by so fast it's hard to keep up? January usually drags a bit for me after the hectic pace of the Christmas and New Year holidays...but not this year!

I haven't had a lot of time to participate in current sketch challenges lately, but that doesn't mean I don't use sketches with the card on last Friday's post.  Today's card uses another older sketch...a  Mojo Monday  sketch from a little more than a year ago (better late than never, hmmm? ).

Shades of deep pink and bright red are accented with green, white, and complementary shabby fun on this upbeat card...

Here's the sketch it's based on...I followed this sketch almost to the letter...

A couple handmade pearl wires are looped though the flower cluster ...I'm so glad I held on to those spools of colored wire from years ago when I used it on my scrapbook pages ...

On the other side, a twisted piece of pink wire from the larger flower, and a pearl flourish to offset the pearl loops on the opposite side...

Patterned papers:  Echo Park This & That Graceful      Flowers:  Wild Orchid Crafts & local craft store
Dies:  My Favorite Things Decorative Doily Duo and Royal Leaves;  Spellbinders Standard Circles Large 
and  Fancy Framed Tags Two
Pearls:  Recollections      Sentiment stamp:  Papertrey Ink      Hug Snug seam binding
Miscellaneous:  cheesecloth, handcrafted pearl wires

Thank you for visiting today...have a wonderful weekend!
