Mod Squad Challenge

Today I worked on my entry for the Mod Squad Challenge. I used Gina K. Designs Birds & Blossoms stamp set by Theresa Momber for the flowers which I stamped in Gina K. Designs black dye ink. I colored them with Copic Markers and then fussy cut them out. My sentiment was also stamped in black ink and was from Gina K. Designs Arranged With Love set by Melanie Muenchinger.

The card base is Gina K. Designs Ivory card stock and layered with Gina K. Designs Innocent Pink card stock. I used Spellbinder Grand Nestabilites Dies to cut the base card and the pink layer. And for the center layer I used ivory card stock and die cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Floral Ovals.

Each layer I sponged on ink using Momento Angel Pink, New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves to create a distressed look. I finished my card by adding some pearl sticker bling by Opaline and also some pink pearls in the center of the flowers. The green striped ribbon bow was made with the Craft-Dee BowZ bow maker.

This card will be also sent to a wonderful friend of mine who will be in the hospital for a long time and I thought perhaps it might help to make her stay go faster if she got lots of nice mail.
