Thank You Pizzazz (CC203, Mojo71)

Have you been wondering about me? Well, I was in the E.R. on Saturday (again) with pain and swelling in my knees, ankles, and hands. I've been referred to a rheumatologist. I'll update you on my progress when I get to see him. Now, I'm back to the challenges! This week's Color Challenge was to use Garden Green, Pacific Point, and Baja Breeze. I made mine a square card because I used the Mojo Monday Sketch.

The actual sketch is shown at left. My card is 5-3/8" square and fits into Stampin' Up!'s Medium Square Envelopes. My base card is Pacific Point Textured card stock. The next layer is partly Green Tea Designer Paper and partly Baja Breeze card stock that has been embossed with the Birds n' Swirls embossing folder. The ribbon and knot is Pacific Point Striped grosgrain ribbon. The main panel is stamped with Baja Breeze using the leaves from Embrace Life and also with Pacific Point using one flower from Petal Pizazz. It is sponged with a dauber and Baja Breeze, matted on Garden Green and then Pacific Point, and the corners were all Ticket Corner Punched. Two more flowers from Petal Pizazz were stamped, cut out and embossed as well as two leaves. I stamped with Cute & Curly using Baja Breeze and punched with the Curly Label Punch. I sponged with Garden Green. I stamped the sentiment with Garden Green and punched with the Small Oval Punch and popped it up with a Dimensional. There's a Rhinestone Brad in the middle of the flower that was stamped on the main image panel. There you have it! All the products used are from Stampin' Up! except for the embossing folder. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Your card is gorgeous! I love the color combo and how you popped off the flowers. I'm not sure if it was by design, but your little bird embossed on the background is perched perfectly atop your base design. (I had to click on the picture to look at that detail). Great job!

Wonderful card! I love the colors and those stamps. Hope you are feeling much better soon. Knee pain is difficult to deal with.
