Mojo Monday #336

Hi everyone.

A new sketch over at the Mojo Monday Blog.  This week it's a lovely sketch by Debbie to work with:

Here's my card:



The dp I've used is by Glitz from the 'Cashmere Dame' collection and I've used black and cream cardstock to go with it.
The stamps I've used are leaves from the 'Bloom & Grow' set by Verve and I've used the coordinating die by Verve to cut it.  The daisy stamp is also by Verve (VS-09-PJ16) and I've fussy cut it.  The sentiment is in Afrikaans and it says 'Congratulations'. 
Die 'Pennant Trim ' die is also by Verve and the circle die is a Spellbinders Nestie.
Added a doiley and some black rhinestones and it was done.

Here's Debbie's sketch:

 
 
 
Before I go I want to share the following photo with you.  After I have taken it I saw that I have caught a bird in flight on it!! 
 



OK, that's it for now!!  Hope you're having a great start to your week!!

Thanks for popping in (... and I love comments!!)
Kind regards
Petra

This is a beautiful card, Petra! The chevron background and sweet flags really enhance the design!! And thanks for sharing that last photo where you got a bird! That's really cool!

Very dramatic with the B&W, and all the graphic elements. I especially like the bold trim on the tiny banners. Also that striking background. Liked the pairing of the vintage doily atop that boldness & then the newsprint over the doily. You took that sketch & really sent it into overdrive with this beautifully done card. Loved the background & your flying visitor too. TFS & Hugs.

So striking in black and white, Petra ... fabulous chevron background ... love how you mimicked the chevrons in the banner! How obliging was that bird in flight?! Anita :)

Such a lovely card Petra. Love the chevrons and flags and the colourway you've chosen. Mind you I do keep getting distracted from your cards by that fantastic view (and the birds, of course!!! lol).
