Mojo Monday #461

August is ticking right along and students in our area have already returned to school a week ago. It really feels like summer is slipping by quickly, so I'm cranking out as many floral cards as I can before the pumpkins and Christmas themed cards begin - lol!  

Here is my take on Julee's sketch for the Mojo Monday Challenge.  I had fully planned on using a doily for the circle element, then got a brainstorm to die cut a circle and use the negative space to sponge a circle instead!  I used WPlus9's Ocean Drive ink for both the sponging and the leaves but they appear totally different.  I'm thinking I must have had some residual yellow ink on my sponge which affected the color.  :-/

Here's what I used:
STAMPS: Hope Blooms (Verve); Sunny Days (Verve).
PAPER: Spring 6x6 pad by Echo Park; White Linen CS by PTI for the card base.
INK: Daffodil Delight (SU), Ocean Drive (WPlus9).
MISCELLANEOUS: Yellow Stickles; Stitched rectangle dies by Lil' Inker Designs; Leafy Sprigs dies by Verve.

What a great idea to sponge in the negative die space as a background for your flowers. Love the plaid paper too. Such a beautiful cheerful card.
