TMS #143 - A Mom Sketch

I have a whole bunch of challenge cards to share today - I didn't get a lot of crafting done this past week, but what I *did* do was inspired & prompted by challenges. By the way, for those of you who occasionally marvel at how many cards I manage to make...I've purposely been keeping count during the month of April, and on May 1st I'll share the total with you. There *might* be another surprise coming too...just sayin'.

Anyway, lately I've been drawing the Tuesday Morning Sketch in my challenge book, and making a real effort to play along. This week's sketch has simple lines & so I found it easy to work with. The linky expires today (Sunday), so speed over & get yourself in the game :)

Supplies: papers from Basic Grey "Plumeria;"
brads from Basic Grey (unknown);
'mom' stamp from Paper Smooches;
Palette Noir ink (generation stamping to get dark grey);
Sakura Stardust pen; flower diecut from K & Co;
pearl strip from dollar store; standard circle Nesties

It's a little difficult to tell in the picture, but the corner circles are adhered using foam tape, as is the floral die cut. The rectangular element is adhered directly to the card base, so just the corners that overlap the circles are popped up. I like how it looks - even though I had to hold it down until it dried to make it work. Zip Dry to the rescue :)

*Also entering into Simon Says Stamp's Anything Goes challenge...because I can. That one ends on Wednesday!
