Don't know about you, but it's always tough for me to get back to stamping after Christmas. I'm definitely ready after the break - just not focused. So I was especially looking forward to yesterday morning's Mojo Monday sketch challenge (#171). Julee's sketches always do wonders for my creative juices! This week, it's a Circle or Square challenge. I (obviously) chose the square version.
The sentiment is from Verve's Text Objects and the flower accent is the Wild Flower Plain Jane. I'm so accustomed to coloring and paper-piecing line images that I often forget how quick it is to stamp with solid images like this Wild Flower. I stamped three flowers in Ranger Fired Brick Distress ink, trimmed down two of them, and layered them onto the first. The glass bauble in the center is from Tim Holtz's Fanciful Acoutrements set. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Curio collection, and the pewter pearls are from KaiserCraft. Each layer is popped up on foam adhesive, too, so this card is a thick one!
