My mojo had disappeared and I thought following a challenge would be a great idea in order to provide focus and to help get my mojo back. So with the colours and layout decided it should have been a doddle - right? Hmmm, that didn't quite go to plan - this is my second attempt! The first card I made I liked but I decided it wasn't really CAS - plus I got an inky smudge inside the card. I walked away at that point and decided to change direction and start on a brand new card the next day!
I started with a 5 1/4" square white card blank and stamped the two larger agapanthus flowers direct to the card front. I then cut a white CS rectangle, embossed it with the SU! Lacy Brocade folder, inked the edges of the panel with Island Indigo ink and glued the panel to the card. I then stamped some smaller agapanthus flowers separately, fussy cut them and popped them up. I die cut the Bistro Label shape, stamped the sentiment and added rhinestones.
Inside I stamped more flowers and a lovely birthday sentiment.
More stamped flowers on the front of the envelope finished everything off. Here's hoping the mojo absence was only temporary!
