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
