Hi friends, I am sharing my take on this weeks Mojo Monday sketch and I used the sweet colors combo from The Color Throwdown....these ladies know how to rock sum colors! Don't you think? I used the colors for a sympathy card and I am very happy with how it turned out, I created the sweet flower; I had a white printed fabric flower that I stained with Heidi Swapp spritz, I then added some SU kraft tulle, and then finished it off with a white paper flower and added a button to the center. I luv creating flowers, you can use so many different elements to achieve the perfect bloom. Happy Monday.....sparkle & shine!
