Great Friend

Stampin up great friend mojo monday 81 

It's time for Mojo Monday #81 and my opportunity to share Julee Tilman's latest sketch challenge.   I feel so lucky to get her beautiful designs in advance and be a part of her Mojo Maker team!

Today's card was quite simple.  I layered Always Artichoke Textured card stock and Manchester Designer Series paper over a 4.25 x 5.5 card base of Whisper White (scored on the side).  A snippet of Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain is a striking contrast to the artichoke.

The stem was inked in Always Artichoke, stamped on Whisper White and matted on Always Artichoke.  The Butterfly was inked in Pumpkin Pie, stamped on Whisper White and matted on Pumpkin Pie.

The sentiment is from the Cute and Curly stamp set.  TIP:  I used a Stampin' Up! Always Artichoke Marker to color just the text portion of the stamp.  It was stamped on Whisper White and layered on Pumpkin Pie and a Scallop Circle of that dorable Manchester Designer Paper plaid.  A Pumpkin Pie Trio Flower Punch is a sweet accent.

I dusted off my much neglected Metallic Eyelets and set one on the Trio Flower and three per the sketch in the bottom corner.  I love the way the copper looks with the Pumpkin Pie on the rest of the card.  TIP:  A Crop-A-Dile makes setting the eyelets simple and silent!

  1. Wow! This is jut beautiful Mary. Your cards are always so classy! Love the cute little flower and eyelet attached to the sentiment panel.

  2. Striking, Mary! Love the pop of Pumpkin Pie! The cute little felt flower is the perfect accent to the sentiment as well…TFS! Hugs, Monica

  3. Great Card, I often forget about the metalic eyelets too! They look awesome on this card. Thanks for sharing, Sue

  4. Oh Mary as usual a beautiful creation and love that you give the details on how you make the card without being asked. Guess I should start doing that on my blog huh? Thanks so much for sharing. So glad I found your blog your creations are awesome!!

  5. What a gorgeous spring card. I absolutely love the color combo. Pumpkin Pie is one of my favorite colors and I find that I tend to use it only in the fall but boy, it sure makes a beautiful spring card also. Thanks for sharing another of your fabulous creations Mary. You are amazing.
