Mojo Monday 301

Hi, there...not used to seeing me on Sunday, are you? :)  I'm working on some projects that I can't post for a bit, and in between working on them, I'm trying to make some cards that I can share now.  My little room is filled with half-finished projects these days...but it's sure a fun "mess."

Today's card is inspired by last Monday's Mojo Monday sketch.  I wanted to play with one of my newest embossing folders and use my Rose Creations die for a frilly center rose, and this sketch was perfect for that.  Here's how it turned out...

I turned the sketch on its side for my card...

Instead of gluing the lace strip down on the ends, I adhered it only in the center (beneath the flowers) and left the ends free for a looser, shabbier look.  The leaf flourishes and paper roses hold it down except for the very ends...

I wanted a golden yellow rose for the center, but with all the colors of cardstock in my stash, not a one was the right color of yellow gold. So I die cut a cream cardstock rose, and used yellow gold acrylic paint, dry-brushed around the edges, to get the two-toned color I was looking for.  I think it worked pretty well!

Patterned papers:   My Minds Eye Miss Caroline/Howdy Doody collection
Dies:   Spellbinders Rose Creations and Foliage Two;   Sizzix Flowers Branches & Leaves;
Memory Box Woven Circle
Embossing folder:   Cuttlebug Modern Wallpaper            Lace:
Mini roses:   Wild Orchid Crafts           Pearls:   Recollections            Hug Snug seam binding
Miscellaneous:   cheesecloth;  handcrafted pearl stick pins

Thanks for visiting today!
