Feeling some MOJO

I found some time to stamp yesterday afternoon and wanted to share my card with you.  When looking at the finished card yesterday, I was quite happy with the results.  I love when I have that feeling!


This is for two challenges ... The Paper Players have a theme challenge this week which is to use birds, bees, flowers and trees.  I got my inspiration for the layout from the MOJO Monday sketch this week.


This is my what my inky fingers created ... 


Stamps:  Fabulous Phrases
Paper:  Regal Rose, Daffodil Delight, Early Expresso, Rose Red
DSP:  Regal Rose (retired)
Ink:  Early Expresso, Daffodil Delight, More Mustard
Accessories:  Nestabilites scalloped circle die, border punch (non SU), two-step bird punch, oval punches, polka dots and petals-a-plenty embossing folders, Baker's twine, sponge daubers, pearls, rhinestones, dimensionals, eyelets
  • This card had a lot of punches and accessories. The only stamp used was the word heartfelt.
  • I used sponge daubers and ink pads to create the yellow background behind my bird.
  • Before sending this card out, I will make one change.  I will add a piece of Early Expresso for the the birds beak.  
Now it's off to get ready for the day.  We have a big soccer game tonight that I am hoping and praying that we win.  My dream is to see the seniors on this team go out as State Champs again.  We won it last year. 

Have a great day,
Pam~
