bloom with hope-mojo monday 358

hello tracey, momma, friends old and new!

i can't believe the computer has won again!  i wanted to link this card to the mojo monday challenge-#358 and found it impossible to 'find' in my picture library or any other 'album' i saw it in.  the picture was mocking me all night long.  it was there, in several places, until i tried to upload it...GAH!  so what does one do when a computer is not cooperating?  turn it off and try again.  so i did.  and it worked. and the link was closed.  i cannot believe it.  :(

i decided to share this very pretty card with you anyway.  the sketch was so easy to create with and the gallery has many beautiful cards.  i hope you like what i did!


stamp set:  bloom with hope
ink:  momento tuxedo black
card stock:  very vanilla, old olive, old olive designer paper (last years)
ribbon:  very vanilla seam binding
blendabilities markers:  wisteria wonder and old olive
extra:  stampin' dimensionals and chalk marker

chalk marker, you might say?  yes!  use a little stroke to highlight the petals and leaves.  love this look!!!  again, i layered some of the petals, not the whole flower.

and yes, tracey, there was a whole lot of fussy cutting going on!

i leave you with this:  "frustration, although quite painful at times, is a very positive and essential part of success".  through my frustration and tears, i solved my problem with uploading pictures.  i am ready now.  i learned what i have to do.  bring on the next challenge!

thank you for stopping by...i appreciate you.

peace be with you
