A Delicious Doodle to Get Mojo Going!

I loved the new Mojo 146 sketch and thought it would easily combine with what I had planned for this week's challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters. Our challenge was to celebrate the month with the fleur of the month...a waterlily or delphinium. Since Teri has some gorgeous flower sketches, I used her Delphinium, which I've adored in the creations she's made with it. Can you believe she drew this?! So talented!

This is my second somewhat failed attempt at the Nestabilities Out of the Box and I'm incredibly frustrated with having cut it incorrectly yet again, but I do love the end result of this card. I used Teri's trick and once I'd colored the flower, I color copied it (shhhh! I did it at work!) then I cut out the original in painstaking detail to be the top dimension.

My sentiment is one that my sweet and super talented friend Laural sent in a package of goodies a couple of weeks back that I haven't gotten around to trying out until now...thanks Laural!

Head over to the Sisterhood - Diane's got a fun prize this week and the lucky winner could be you!

  3. I hear you re: the out of the box nesties frustrations! I cut off my pirate's feet and almost go his sword too LOL! Your flowers are gorgeous and well done with the Mojo sketch!! I'm not sure I"m going to attempt this one - yes, call me chicken! Have a fabulous week!

  4. Awsome job using the Mojo sketch! I used it for my post tomorrow, but I like yours so much better than Never tried that Nestie thing yet, way to scared that I will screw it up...Whatever you did, it looks great with Teri's flower!
