Mojo Monday...You Inspire Me

Good morning, friends! I had a chance to combine a couple of challenges today with this card...I used Mojo Monday's sketch and in the Splitcoast 'Try a New Technique' forum, we're to add 3 patterns to our cards. Well, now that I'm typing this and looking at my card, even though I used 5 different patterned papers, only two of them have patterns. Actually, there are 3, but two are very similar. Oh, well...not starting over now! Here's my card:

The papers are from Maja Design's Vintage Summer Basics collection. Very soft, very chic and very feminine papers...I have such a hard time cutting them because I want them to last forever! I distressed all the edges and added both liquid and solid pearls to the design. The flower is fabric and I stacked that onto a crocheted white flower. The tag is from Verve's Tiny Sweet Scallop die. I sponged the edges, added White Opal liquid pearls and stamped a sentiment from Verve's Dare to Be set. As a finishing touch, I outlined the perimeter with some Petal Pink Liquid looked a bit boring. :)

Thanks for stopping by...I'll be back tomorrow with Verve's Diva Inspiration Hop for February!
