Mojo Monday #205



Yay!!! I finally got one done.:) I have been trying out paper flowers and my Silhouette SD cutting machine. I made both the rose and the scalloped circle from my Silhouette machine. I cut the flowers out and then manipulated them into the rose shape..added some glue and glitter and I LOVE it...and you can't beat the crisp cutting of the Silhouette machine on that scalloped circle.Oh..I made the leaves by using my decorative scissors.Also the cover of the card on the right edge.:) The embossed paper under the scalloped circle is done using one of the embossing plates on Christy's (DD) Cuttle bug machine. I LOVE embossing and you will most likely be seeing more of it from me from now on.:)
The ric rac ribbon is from: ribbonFX
The orange ribbon is from Micheal's Craft store.
The string is from Big Lots Dollar bin
The papers are from my stash of loose paper pieces and I can't tell you right now what company made them. Sorry.:(
I am a frugal crafter so a LOT of my supplies are from sales and dollar bins and things people have given to me through the years. I always say..if you can do it "cheaper"..why not?:)

On a side note....I adjusted the rose and moved it over to the right a hair so it would be in the center of the circle... after seeing it on here.:) Close your left eye and maybe it will look like it.LOL Got ya!! I tried it too..*snort!!

Thanks so much for stopping in and please don't leave without saying hi. I LOVE your visits!!

Hugs,
Valinda

The card is beautiful and okay, the rose isn;t exactly in the centre of the circle, but I think that makes the card even more interesting. It's not always the best to have everything placed equally and straight and so.
Thanks for your sweet wishies on our anniversairy!
Have a enjoyable weekend.
