Mo's Challenge #119

These are a Few of My Favorite Things!

Mo's Challenge this week is to use one of Mo's images with some of your favorite things! 
My number one favorite thing  is any of Mo's images, so that part was easy! 
I chose "Make a Wish " as my image for this card. It's great for a birthday or get well greeting.

I couldn't use all of my favorite things, of course....the card would have weighed a ton and been gaudy to the extreme!  Besides Mo's fantastic images, I  love wonderful colors, designer papers, SU! card stock, gingham ribbon, flowers, beads, pearls, and Copic markers! I also love die-cuts, punches, and lace!
I have more of the aforementioned items than I'll ever use in my lifetime, but I can't seem to stop myself from buying more!

Tools: Copic markers, Distressing tool, Silver Spica pen

Papers: SU! Poppy and Cool Caribbean, Neenah smooth white, SU! DP

Embellishments: Hat pin and Flowers from WOC, Gingham ribbon, Beads

I've got a brand new pair of roller skates....
You've got a brand new key!

In my mind, his little one just had to be a redhead, and this great paper was perfect for her! I used two MS punches along the bottom and used a small flower punch to punch the flowers out of a scrap of DP. I mounted them on the card using dimensional dots to create a little flower garden.

Tools: Copic markers, MS Fence and Grass punches, Small flower punch, Distressing tool

Papers: SU! Celery and Turquoise, Neenah smooth white, My Minds Eye Stella Rose and Basic Grey  DP

Your turn! Show us what your favorite things are...make a card using one of Mo's images and your favorite embellishments, tools, techniques, or what-have-you and share it with us in Mo's Challenge for a chance to win an image to add to your collection!

Love it when you visit!

Elaine, I think both cards are fantastic, and you are so right about the card weighing a ton if you put on all your favorite
