MOJO229 and Charming

Beau Chateau Designer Series Paper meets Charming in this monochromatic card. I love the patterns in the paper, which remind me of the wallpaper in my mother's bedroom where I grew up. It was only natural for me to decide on Happy Mother's Day for a greeting. 

Mary Fish designed a sweet sketch at Mojo Monday this week, which was the inspiration for this project. Click on the link to see other beautiful creations using this sketch. 

The images from the Charming Stamp Set fit just perfectly inside a Designer Frame. To make this, first I stamped the background image in Crumb Cake. Next, I used markers to color the flower image stamp, and stamped right over the background. Next, I embossed with the Designer Frames Embossing Folder. Finally, I cut out the frame by hand and sponged with a little Soft Suede Ink.
