Embrace Life

It's Mojo Monday time again! For this week's sketch, I used an old Carousel Note as my card base, and one of my favourite stamp set and paper combos - Embrace Life and Ginger Blossom. It's been awhile since I used this stamp set, I'd forgotten how nice it is!

I had some extra time (while I played a poker tournament at Full Tilt! I love online poker) so I cut out more flowers while I played and made a matching envelope.

Here's the card. This is just the card front, there is a square card base glued underneath. I used a bunch of the Ginger Blossom paper as well as Ruby Red & Groovy Guava card. The circle layers were cut with the Circle Scissors plus - I love this tool! The glitter is copper stickles.

Here's the inside. I've used ink pads and a blender pen to quickly colour the images for a bit of pop.

The envelope features a Very Vanilla label and a couple of the same cut-out flowers from the card. Simple, but oh so pretty!

Happy Stampin'
