I didn't follow the sketch exactly as it is shown, but that's okay! Now this is in my stash, ready to send to my friend for her May 2 birthday.

It's Monday, and that means it's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch! I played around with the sketch and some of my designer papers that are in my stash. We live about 5 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, and every summer my teacher friends and I meet for a gab session. I think I will send this card to one of them for her upcoming birthday. I'm entering this into Mojo Monday 485.

I was sick for about four weeks ... nothing earth shattering, but I just felt blah. I wasn't even sick enough to miss work; okay, one day, but that was it.
While I was sick, though, I did spend a lot of time looking at blogs and looking at challenges. This weekend, I finally got into my craft space and did some tidying. That gave me the push to make a card. This card is inspired by CASE(E) this Sketch #209.
Aren't those little flowers just adorable? They were in a package of many goodies that Sister sent to me for a Christmas present. I used some Distress Inks to watercolor the design, and then I added a sentiment. My MISTI tool is fantastic! I never had much luck with embossing (the stamping part of it, that is), but the MISTI made it possible to restamp to get a good image. The flowers and some splatters with Gold Perfect Pearls added the finishing touch.
