MoJo Monday #41 & a Verve Challenge

I've had a nasty cold all weekend and it seems to have zapped my creativity. When I saw Julee's sketch for this week's MoJo Monday challenge, I couldn't wait to work on it. However when I actually sat down to do it, I just couldn't find my MoJo!!! I needed an Anniversary Card for my parents (their 36th wedding anniversary is June 16!!!!! Amazing.) and I since I already had all the stuff on my work table I decided to use Kristina Werner's color inspiration colors. To me, this card is lacking something, but I can't figure out what. Oh well. My parents will love it anyway!

I used Fancy Florals and Anniversary Birds from Verve Visual. Kristina's colors that I used are Whisper White, Going Gray, Rose Red, So Saffron and Old Olive. I used my corner rounder punch to make the scalloped edge, and added some Old Olive ribbon and half pearls to finish it up!

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!!!

The next card is for the Verve Visual Product Parade Inspiration Challenge. Here's the inspiration photo:
It's basically this card, just redone in different colors. I liked how the filigree background turned out and when I saw the inspiration photo, I knew I had to do it again!! I used Floral Whimsy and Filigree Fantasy from Verve. The sketch is actually based on one of Julee's old cards, which you can see here.

I was planning on getting a lot more done this weekend than I have, but this cold is really dragging me down. I need to start planning and working on craft fair projects and preparing for our garage sale next week, but I think I'm just going to curl up in bed with a good book and rest!!
