Mon Amie

In about 15 mins, Monday will be history. I'm going to go ahead and post my MojoMonday card without the customary chit-chat . Here it is, folks, my spring-feel card for a dear friend:

The patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye "Pretty Please" 6x6 pad. 

For embellies, some sheer white ribbon. Keeping it fairly flat so that I can send it off on its cross-Atlantic journey without upsetting the postman. 

The greeting is from WMS Fancy Phrases set, stamped in Memento Rose Bud. For cutting and layering I used Spellbinders Circles and Scalloped Circles dies.

After cutting and layering I adhered the greeting to the card with some foam tape.

On the inside I went for a simplified take on the card sketch.

I'm playing these challenges: MojoModay #285 - sketch;  The Shabby Tea Room #158 "Anything Goes"; Lacy Sunshine Challenge #4 "Layer It Up" ; Glitter & Sparkle #24 "Easter or Spring Colours" - I'm using spring colours; Craft Your Passion #154 "Ribbon / Lace" - I'm using ribbon and Challenges 4 Everybody #16 "Anything Goes".

That's all from me today. Thanks for stopping by. I'm off to bed now, it's been a long day. And I'm still recovering from a nasty case of food-poisoning. That explains my no-show over the weekend but regular visitations will resume soon. I also have scheduled a post for you tomorrow. Its time for another  Tuesday Throwdown challenge with a fun theme. I hope you'll swing by tomorrow for a peek. Until then, my sweet friends, I bid you good night!
