Project 21: Blog Challenges

I saw this challenge on Mojo Monday and the layout spoke to me. I tried 4 different versions, really taking care with papers and embellishments to make each card work in its own right.

The headline card also works for another blog challenge site I stumbled across called the Shabby Tea Room which had a rose theme so I used the rose as the featured embellishment.

The purple butterfly is my favourite. I loved the papers and anything to use more Martha butterflies.

Next is my red white and blue feature using my British papers. I’ve got a big stash of paper flowers at the moment and I’m trying to replace my dependency on the butterflies.

Finally a Queen’s Jubilee card for my Grandma. It’s busy but I really wanted to use the textured papers and do something featuring those little illustrations. I added the glitter touches to make it a bit more "diamond-y" to reflect the message. It’s a bit twee for me but I think Grandma will like it.

More on Grandma’s cards later…

  4. Thanks! I like to do a few versions of the sketch when I play Mojo Monday because sometimes it takes a few attempts to get it right. And I think if you're going through the trouble of posting it you might as well dedicate some TLC to the project!
