Mojo Monday #172.......

As soon as I seen the latest Mojo Monday sketch I knew exactly what I wanted to do. SO rare for me...normally I sit there pushing bits of card stock and my stamp sets around LOL After finishing it last night, I woke up this morning and had the brilliant idea that I should have done some stitching on it too. So this is actually my second card for this sketch with both machine and hand stitching on it. I'm really happy with the result. I think it was worth redoing *smile*

Here's the sketch-

And my 1st/2nd card-

And here is my final card -

Got to say that I'm loving it even more now. And yes, that's's definitely finished!!!! *smile*

Did you notice that I have a circle shape on this card??? Thanks to a gift voucher from my BIL and his lovely girlfriend, I am now the very proud owner of a set of circle and oval nesties. I think I'm in love!!!! LOL You will be seeing a LOT of those shapes on my cards from now on. No more having to substitute with a square any more *smile*

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamp Set- Short and Sweet, Vintage Vogue
Ink- StazOn, Cherry Cobbler
Card stock- Cherry Cobbler, Basic Black, Very Vanilla
DSP- Jolly Holiday
Other- Big Shot, Hearts and Brackets die, basic pearls, snail, dimensionals

Edited to add - OK, I did it again. Came down stairs this morning and seen this card still sitting on my craft desk and thought ...what if I added some vintage lace?????
