Mo's Challenge #155

Anything Goes With Mo's

That's Mo's Challenge this week! So easy...I love it!

I used the opportunity to make a masculine card. My husband needed a 'thank you' card for a friend whose hospitality he enjoyed on a trip to New York State with his brother recently. 
I paper-pieced the recliner. I love doing that, but don't often think of  it when I'm printing out my images. It's much easier to print the DP at the same time so that you don't have to guess what size the image is!

Inside: "Thanks for making me feel right at home!"

 Images: "King for the Day" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment from TLC

Tools: Copics, MS Border punch, Glue dots

Papers: SU! Curry, Cocoa, and Olive CS, Neenah white, Paper Studio DP

Embellishments: Twine, Buttons


I've had this image colored for some time now, and just got around to making a card with it.
The little diamonds across the bottom are the negative pieces from a lattice die. That's proof that I save everything!

Images: "A, My Name is Alice" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment

Tools: Copics, Lattice die from Cheery Lynn, MS Butterfly and Hydrangea punches, SU! Oval punches, Tacky Tape

Papers: SU! Red, Pink, and Bashful Blue, Neenah white, SU! DP (Very old!)

Embellishments: Tiny pearl cabochons


I was in a red, white, and blue mood!

Images: "Waiting for the Parade" from Mo's Digital Pencil, Digital sentiment from TLC

Tools: Copics, White gel pen, Fine black marker, MS Border punches, Corner punch, Nellie Snellen embossing leaf punch set

Papers: SU! Red and Bashful Blue, Neenah white, Basic Grey DP

Embellishments: Flowers from WOC, Grosgrain ribbon

Well, that's it for this week! I hope you'll make something wonderful using an image from Mo and enter the challenge for a chance to win a $5.00 gift certificate from her shop!
