Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 218 - Use Mesh

 

Today's Speedy Fox & Friends challenge 218 is to use mesh on your card or project.  I wanted the mesh to be in a sort of bow tie formation under the flower, but I couldn't the mesh to cooperate, hence, it only shows on the top!  I used a new image released in the June 2014 blog hop by the SR DT - titled Great Flowers.  Be sure and join us for the challenge and, remember, there is always a prize of a stamp set to the weekly winner.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  Great Flowers by Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.
Paper: MFP White Heavy Premium 140 lb. CS;  SU Perfect Plum CS; Prima DP
Ink:  Copics: BG23, 13, 11, 10; Y38, 35 and 32
Accessories:  Pop Dots and Self-adhesive gems; mesh

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you at the challenge!  Later gator!
