MOJO 300 - Anniversary Card

300 Challenges is certainly something to celebrate so I wanted to add my good wishes & join them on this celebratory challenge by using the sketch they have especially created. I have found some lovely summer floral papers & just in case you think my Cameo was having a rest for this card, you would be wrong as the papers & sentiment were printed as print & cuts having added a couple of 'stitched' lines to a couple of the layers which happens to also be a requirement over at Silhouette Challenges & Crafts4Eternity at the moment. To keep to the 'stitchy'-theme I then paper-pierced the sentiments backing card having distressed the edges & this mat was added to the card with foam pads. Yet more texture was added using a Sizzix embossing folder on the card layer at the back.

I know, shock horror, I haven't coloured any image - but my Promarkers did come out to colour the centre of my daisy petals which needless to say, is a flower cut using my beloved cutter. To hopefully add a bit more realism I added a Flower Soft centre to this floral embellishment, but as I didn't have yellow in my collection to use the Promarkers were out again to colour in my Flower Soft! Seems to have worked all right too! LOL. My daisy was then added using glue gel.

Thanks for visiting.
