Mojo Monday/Create with Connie and Mary Challenges card

Hi everyone! Here are two last challenges I was hoping to get done this week. They are Mojo Monday 153 sketch 
Create with Connie and Mary color challenge

I love these colors, but I think there's only less than 24 hours left for the color challenge. The colors are: Pacific Point (yea!!!), Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue, Daffodil Delight, and black. The Mojo Monday challenge was a simple, modern sketch, and the art inspiration for the color challenge was also modern, so I decided to link them. It's hard to see here, but the white background is glossy white, I liked the added dimension it gave to the card. I stamped the swirl from SU! set "Priceless" in the UR hand corner, I then punched a small square out of each of the colors for the challenge, and then 4 larger squares in black. I dry embossed the colored squares with my Cuttlebug embossing folder, being careful to center the squares on the flowers in the folder. I added colored rhinestones to the center of each flower. I used this fun ribbon from the 1$ bin at Michaels, and did the loopy thing with it. To try this: run a strip of adhesive down on your card, stick down one end of the ribbon, and then loop it up as you go along, sticking it back to the adhesive after the loop, do this as many loops as you want, then trim the ends. A fun (and easy!) no-sew ribbon technique. I stamped the "thank you" sentiment from SU! "Because I Care."  Finally I added the Prima Flowers, layered with a retired Pacific Point SU! corduroy brad. Ok, well that's it for me, Thanks SO much for all the nice comments, I am hooked on blogging for life! I will be sure to be visiting your blog as well if you leave a comment. Have a great day! :) Noelle
