Mojo Monday #459

Welcome to the first of the month Mojo Monday Challenge! That means it's contest time, so you don't want to miss out on the chance to win a free Verve stamp set! You don't have to use Verve stamps, but if you have them...we like to see them!  One winner for every 50 entries, so hope to see you in the gallery! Here's my take on Julee's fun sketch...

I thought I'd be smart and cut out 3 of the same sized long stitched rectangles and then cut off different widths on two of them to mirror the sketch design.  When I went to adhere them to an A2 sized card base, I realized they were only 4 5/8" long, so I needed to trim off the bottom of the card - thus the strange looking shape!  Guess I wasn't so smart after all - lol!  I colored the card with Copics after stamping and die cutting.  Here's what I used...

STAMPS: Surely Goodness (Verve), Take Note (Verve).
PAPER: Snap Color Vibe by Simple Stories, X-Press It Blending Card, White CS by PTI.
INK: Memento Tuxedo Black.
DIES: Goodness Flowers by Verve; Stitched Rectangles by Lil' Inker Designs; Stitched Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics by MFT.
COPICS: RV34, RV17, RV19, YG03, YG17.

Love your card and wouldn't have realized that it needed "surgery" if you hadn't mentioned it. Love the idea of framing the big, beautiful bloom!
