MOJO 208 and Picture Perfect Creations 73

Saturday, October 1, 2011

Boy, have I been MIA this week.  Long story short, my Dad has been in the hospital since last Saturday.  I just picked him up today and brought him home, and this is just about the first time I've sat down in my stamp room and tried to be productive.  Since the hospital is quite a distance from my house, this week has been nothing but a series of late nights.

I'm so behind on everything, including commenting on blogs that I love to visit.  And to top it all off blogger is having issues again with commenting.  It seems like blogs where the comments are embedded as part of the post are unable to receive comments from me (and I suspect others).  So I apologize for my silence this week!

Now, on to a card that I actually started on Monday and have finally gotten around to finishing.  I made it for the latest MOJO sketch and the color challenge at Picture Perfect Creations.

I wanted to make a card using these colors primarily because I love adding a little bit of black to a card.  Especially when it has a bright color like Calypso Coral and a complementary color like Old Olive.

I used the Berry Blossoms designer paper layered on some Calypso Coral for my squares and rectangles.  The flowers are from the gorgeous Raining Flowers stamp set and the sentiment (which does show up better in person) say "happiness always" and is from a retired Sale-A-Bration set called Whimsical Words.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Fantastic layout and I love the pattern paper. The flower in the middle just adds to the prettiness of your card. Hope you dad is feeling better. I had the same thing just about two weeks ago so my thoughts are with you and your family. We love having you at PPC, thanks for playing this week.
