Make It Monday 196

Ahhh.  Life must be geting back to normal.  I think this is the first time I've had the time and/or focus to tackle a Make It Monday challenge since last October.  Today's challenge was to create a card with the emphasis on a corner element.  I used the leaves and flowers from PTI's Embellished Elegance, and to make them fit right, I .....actually cut them apart!  Much better.  I took the leaf element and used it as an echo effect for the background, stamping it in Soft Stone ink.  

This was my 3rd attempt. After trying to include watercolor elements and a larger stamped background I concluded that with these deliate flowers and leaves, it was best to keep things simple!  Adding too much would've made it muddy and cluttered, as in my first two attempts.

Paper:  PTI Stampers Select White, Limeade Ice
Ink: Simply Chartreuse, Limeade Ice, Hibiscus Pink, Rasberry Fizz

  1. This is so pretty and the colors have me dreaming of spring already. 74 more day to go! It feels good to be back in a normal routine, doesn't it? I was just thinking that today.

  2. Very pretty. I actually thought of using this stamp set, but decided on Garden Grace instead.

  3. Nice job, better than what I came up with! Pretty colors

  4. Such a bright and happy card, I love it! I can't wait for Spring also!
