From Courtney's Closet Challenge Anniversary & Monday Mojo

Nothing like getting in right in the knick of time huh? I have had a window open for From Courtney's Closet Challenge Anniversary since May 21rst and I'm now just doing it...and it's due by 9 p.m. today. I liked a lot of the pictures of Courtney but ultimately it was the colors of her bib and her shirt underneath that drew me in.

I used the Mojo Monday sketch for this card which is also for a Monday Mailer that I was set to do this month and completely forgot about it. Nothing like forgetting and then really having a hard time finding a current SU set to use (and I have 3 more weeks to go as well). Hope my partner likes flowers a lot as that seems to be the only ones I have left.

I used Tempting Turquoise, Regal Rose (by far my favorite pink color) and Chocolate Chip for my cardstock and inks. I added some 5/8" chocolate ribbon as well as some regal rose grosgrain. I colored my flowers with markers and after taking the picture think I'm going to add some Crystal Effects to them. My little flower was cut out and I added a rhinestone brad (just the rhinestone part) to the inside of my flower. I love the brads but can never get them to lay just right without ruining where they are supposed to be so I always seem to take the rhinestone out of them and apply them with a pop dot. (stamp set: Simply Said).

Well, congrats Libby on the anniversary of From Courtney's Closet Challenge. I can't wait to see some more cute outfits from Courtney.
