Mojo Monday 98 -Basket

here is my card for Mojo 98! Sorry about the picture but the sun was just going down and I needed to get this one pictured! This weeks sketch was a little bit different and I was keen to try Nina's image and sentiment from 'Elegant Post'. This little hanging basket is so fine in it's detail it would be OK to leave it un-coloured, almost. My dp for this card had this bright magenta with a soft green and believe it or not the dark colour is brown - fabulous, I loved it and it just so happened I had the magenta plain and a small piece of ribbon that matched perfectly!
  • Stamps - Elegant Post by Nina Brackett for Gina K Designs.
  • Ink - Versacolor - brown and coloured pencils with baby oil.
  • Paper - GKD Soft Sand, Magenta is Bazzill (I think)DP heidi grace designs - forever flourish
I've layered the dp onto a piece of the magenta card stock. Used spellbinders dies for the two circles and the labels shape that sits behind them. The stamped circle was attached to the plain circle with thin foam tape. I also attached the plain labels panel to the dp with the same thin foam tape, just to pop this element a little. To finish off the ribbon was slipped through two slits at the side of the card and knotted.
Hope you like this little card, Nina's set has three sentiments, five images and the post, so there
are lots of options - I love it. Go check it out for yourself at Gina K Designs.

Hope to see you tomorrow
Till then..........
