The Shabby Tea Room #113, Mojo Monday #240, Love to Create Challenge #14, Moxie Fab World - Damask and Brocade Challenge

This challenge from The Shabby Tea Room:

Plus this sketch from Mojo Monday:

Plus the Damask and Brocade Challenge from Moxie Fab World, and a 'For Mom/ or Special Lady' them from the Love to Create Challenge Blog....

Equals this card from me:

I always love the sketches from Mojo Monday, but I  have a hard time with them.  I don't know why, I just never know what to put where.  So, this card took me a lot longer than I would have liked :)

I thought from the colors, and what I took from the inspiration photo, and just how the whole thing turned out....this would make a perfect Mother's Day card for my grandma.

I used the technique found here to make my border for my circle. It was really easy, and I just used the rhinestones to cover up my cut marks. That's it!

Supply List:

stamps - Stampin' Up! (Special Greetings, Lot's of Thoughts)
ink - Stampin' Up! (Blue Bayou)
cardstock - Stampin' Up! (Blue Bayou, Whisper White, Crumb Cake)
