Mystery Monday with Rimna!!

Happy Monday fabulous friends!

Hope everyone had a great weekend, feeling refreshed and ready for some fun challenges this week.  Today of course is Mystery Monday at the FFC blog and our host this week is my talented friend, 1LuvnMama.  She chose this fantastic card to case by a fellow TGF Farmer from the last team, Rimna

Love this card, so elegant and vintage.  I decided to play as close to it as possible switching out a few of the elements.

I picked CC Piper for my card and used E40 & 41 to outline her, for her eyes I used B23.  The papers are all scraps from various DCWV stacks.  Used broken china and weathered wood to distress parts of the papers and also to stamp the splotchys.  The sentiments are from two different stamps from the Roll Call kit.  Punched out two MS butterflies and stamped and distressed them with a Stampendous stamp & broken china distress inks.   Okie dokie, your turn!

Don't forget! You now have two ways to play! You can either CASE the card OR you can use it as an inspiration piece. Meaning that you can make the same style of card, use the same colors, etc, just as long as we can tell that you got your ideas from the showcased card.

The Mystery Monday contest runs until Sunday, entries are due by 12 PM CST.

The winner is chosen by random draw and will win a free TGF single stamp of choice, so good luck!

Please post your cards in the TGF Galleria - Home > Farm Fresh Challenges 2011 > Mystery Mondays > Rimna

Mahalo for stopping by and don't forget to have a great day!
