{ Mojo Monday 124 and Melissa's photo inspiration challenge }

Melissa Phillips posted this beautiful photo for an inspiration challenge. I have this photo saved as one of my favorites, too. I love the colors.

Here is my card and I had so much fun making it. I used Mojo Monday 124 sketch for the card. Our new Shimmerz Vibez were released today...see my post below. The colors are so vibrant and shimmery. My favorite: Red-y Or Not and Rusty Bottom Vibez.

I stamped the card base with Cover-a-card Music (CC029). I heat embossed Cover-a-card Large dots (CC007) with clear embossing powder over that. I sprayed the background with Ruby Shimmerz Spritz, first, then Red-y Or Not and Rusty Bottom Vibez. I used a towel to wipe over the embossed area, to "clean it up" so that the polka dots show up really well. I made my little flower out of old book paper. You can visit my tutorial if you would like to know how I make these. I sprayed the flower with Licorice and Ruby Shimmerz Spritz and Red-y Or Not Vibez. Like my tutorial says, I use a heat tool to dry the flower, it heat sets it and the flower keeps the shape. I painted the edges with Pearl Shimmerz Pearlz. I used October Afternoon patterned paper that I punched with Martha Stewart punch and Jenni Bowlin journaling note. The sentiment is from Anytime Sentiments (CL43). The sun finally came out and I was able to capture the shimmer.
