...and this morning was one of those times.
Usually I look at the Mojo Monday Sketch and my mind immediately picks out a stamp or paper that would be perfect. Today I looked at the sketch and got nada, nothing, zilch. I started rummaging through a box of stamps and came across a Sweet & Sassy set, Birds and Roses, that I had bought a while ago but hadn't used yet. And after looking at the various sentiments in the set, 7 of them to be exact, I decided I could make a lovely card for Mrs. B, my BFF's mother. Once I decided that, the mojo started flowing and it was easy peasy from there.
The scalloped circles are Cricut cut using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge, the smallest has been popped. There is clear Wink of Stella glitter on the roses, but it doesn't show in the photo. All the edges have been distressed. I used my favorite SU Sizzix embossing folder on the blue dp and another Darice embossing folder on the white cs behind it. Then I simply finished the card with 3 tiny white pearls on the side.
I am entering this card in the following:

BTW, for those of you who follow my blog regularly and are waiting to hear how the boys made out in the tournament this week-end, they took home 2nd place trophies. I don't know how the boys played 2 games in that heat! After the game my grandson came up to us with a big smile and said, "I am really dirty!" And he was!!!!
