Mojo Monday 98

Can you believe it... I made a Mojo Monday Challenge card and it's Tuesday! WOW, whats up with that... LOL! :) I decided to use my DP for the colors and the challenge to get me going.

I did some faux stitching, and sponged most of the edges with Creamy Carmel to give an aged look. On my Upsy Daisy flowers I used my markers to ink up my stamp and used a sponge dauber to blend the colors. Being it was a new stamp it wanted to bead the ink up, so I used my Poppin' Pastel Chalks to fill in. Plus I used my CB folders for more texture!

Thanks for poppin' in and I ALWAYS love your visits! Enjoy...

SMILES... Michelle :)

Love, love, love this card. The colours are fantastic. You'll have to tell how you "beaded" up the ink? I like the texture of the flowers. Do tell!
As for Monday's post.... thanks for the mention. You are just the sweetest!!! Enjoy your day, Michelle.

A purty card Michelle! You are really making me nostalgic for the fall weather. (sigh) I love your faux stitching... I didn't even know it was faux until I read it! And you definitely rock those CB embossing folders!

Hugs and smiles and power thoughts to you my sweet friend.

So many great colors and textures. I really like the more elegant satin ribbon in combination with the more rustic twill. Beautiful.
