Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge #204

Salutations! Today's card is for Mojo Monday's Challenge #204.  At first I couldn't think of a focal for this card until I knocked over all the miscellaneous piles of art stuff at the end of my table! It's amazing what you find in piles on your desk.  I found a couple of string art flower embellishments left over from another project which was perfect for the card.

Mojo Monday's Sketch


Here is my card.



Here are a couple of close up pictures of the string art.








The string art embellishments are easy to make and the more you layer the flowers and thread the nicer they look.  I made a simple string art (Spirelli) flower tutorial here if you would like to learn how to make them.

Supplies
Cardstock: black and sky blue
Spirelli Paper Punch
Silver metallic thread
Pearl dew drop
Silver metallic paper by The Paper Company
Tim Holtz Embossing Folder
Background Paper: Made by Me with crafters workshop templates, distress inks,
acrylic paints, Tim Holtz stamps, and jet black archival ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Go Create and Be Extraordinary!
