The Conservatory View

I was too late to get my submission into Mojo Monday last week.  Got a little confused about Mountain Time as opposed to Eastern Standard!  You can bet I won’t forget next time…  there were prizes involved in this first challenge of the month.  Woe is me….

This card was made with one of my favorite papers from the 7 gypsies Conservatory Collection.  In fact, this tiny floral was the reason I bought the stack, which then wound up not being used because no project seemed worthy of it.  Time to get over it.  

This particular MM challenge sketch had lots of real estate to show off the delicate floral so I used my fav plus several others in the collection for this card.  I have had the polka-dot, organza flower for some time and I think it was a Recollections piece.  The center is a Bazzill Button with a pearl added from my stash.  The pink pin is a Prima piece and the other two pearl pins are “name unknown”.   I asked the lady I bought them from (Milu) what the brand name was and she checked but found nothing.  Poor little nameless beauties…  The birdcage above the flower has been coated with Glossy Accents to make it more obvious because it is so lightly sketched.  Everything was edged with Distress Ink in Broken China and/or Shabby Shutters.  I’m thinking I may go back and Gloss those butterflies as well…

Now I have to think what it shall be…  a birthday card, a get-well card, hmmmmm….

I love, love, love getting your comments and appreciate each and every one!  Hugs & Stuff!
