Back to reality...

So my vacation to Florida is over, and now it is time to get back to work, housework and algebra. But I was jonesing to do some scrapping, as it had been over two weeks since I last made a card (my previous card was made before I left for vacation, but I didn't post until the 1st because of the blog hop). Of course, when I first sat down to scrap when we got back from vacation, I realized I needed to do some organizing. Which created a larger mess than I had to start with (and gave me 84 other projects that I want to do). So I didn't end up doing any scrapping until this morning (and in case you are wondering, the organization is NOT complete).



Realizing I would soon be in need of a birthday card, I followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch to make this card. I used the new DCWV designer cardstock I bought yesterday (as if I don't have enough paper), along with CTMH cardstock in Crystal Blue, Sorbet and White Daisy. The flowers (CTMH Big Pinks) were sponged around the edges with Crystal Blue and Sorbet inks, connected together with Zots, and given a Crystal Blue CTMH button for the center. The sentiment (from CTMH Card Sentiments) was stamped in Grey Wool ink on a panel cut using Nestabilities Large Labels and then sponged with Crystal Blue ink while still in the die. Stitched ribbon is CTMH Sorbet. The sentiment panel and the flower were mounted with 3-D Mounting Foam.
