Bloomin' Birthday

We've been experiencing 'technical difficulties' in the January home as of late, so today's post is going to be short and sweet. I dug thru. my 'fab. ideas pile' and selected an older Mojo Monday sketch as a starting point. (Be here tomorrow for my take on the most recent Mojo.)

One of my most down-to-earth girlfriends is not especially 'foofy' - pinks and purples, ruffles and ribbon, just aren't 'her thing'. I love the color palette from the retired Autumn Vine Designer Series Paper collection and knew she would too. Really Rust, More Mustard, Sage Shadow, and a bit of Chocolate Chip give this creation a rich feel. I used the Eastern Blooms stamp set and added sassy touches with Vintage Brads. TIP: Combine the small and large blooms to create lovely layered flowers.

Don't forget: Shop Online 24/7. Treat Yourself.

Love the rich colors and your take on the sketch! Did you sponge the edges of the little flowers? The layered flowers are amazing. Hugs,
