Floral Easter

Hello again, dear friends. It's time for another MojoMonday card. Here's this week's sketch 233 . It looks harmless enough, but boy, did I struggle. Can't seem to find my mojo today. You know, I tried all kinds of everything this is what I've come up with. Not particularly thrilled, but I've done worse! Tell me what you think :-)

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye "Pretty Please" pack.  And because I decided to use a very busy floral print for the background, I kept it at just one piece, with a strip of quarter inch cream satin ribbon running down just off centre.  

 For embellishment I've got 4 purple pearls running down the left panel. With the X-Cut Border Punch "Leafy Lace" I gave a decorative edge to some blue CS for the side panel.  I've also used 4 purple eyelets: 2 on the side panel and 2 more on the label. I tied a simple knot in sheer purple ribbon through the top eyelet of the punched panel. 

The greeting is from WMS's "Compact Sentiments" set, stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on to some white CS, cut out with Spellbinders Grommet Tags die and sponged with TH's Faded Jeans and Tattered Rose. Using my Fiskars punch I got 4 itsy-bitsy blossoms to scatter on the label, to follow through with those on the patterned paper. 

Finally, on all 4 corners I've attached a cluster of  flat-back pearls.

On the inside, followed through with the floral theme by adhering a couple of  large blooms , cut using a die from Spellbinders Floral Doily Accents set.

Since my embellis are in 4s I'm also going for the Raise the Bar challenge #96. As always, I'm sharing this with the good folks at Make It Monday #81. Thanks for visiting and see you at my next post.
