Mojo Monday Challenge #378

It is Friday, my last official day of vacation. The time has FLOWN by and been so relaxing. One of the things that I was able to do over vacation was to see a lot of movies. I saw "Unbroken" and "Wild" at the movie theatre and watched "Delivery Man," "Sex Tape," and "Lone Survivor" on TV. I have an eclectic taste in movies, don't I?

Today I am sharing a card I created using the sketch #378 from the "Mojo Monday Challenge Blog."

I used Ranger Distress Markers to ink up the flower stamps from Lawn Fawn's "Penelope's Blossoms" stamp set and the vase from Lawn Fawn's "Our Friendship Grows" stamp set to create the vase with the flowers. After they were stamped, I took a wet water color brush and brushed over them to give them a water colored effect.

After the flowers were dry, I added some Stickles to the middle of the pink flowers and Clear Wink of Stella over the purple to the make the images sparkle.

I then used the sketch below for the rest of my card.
I did not do a tall and skinny card but adapted it to a regular 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" card size. The papers were all scraps that I had in my scrap bin.

Thank you for looking!! Have a great day!!
