Mojo 255 Part Deux

Hi, Thought I'd try this Mojo a second time.

I used: SU 'Valentine Defined' stamp set
Real Red and Basic Black cs; 'Love Impressions' DSP
Red and Black markers
Nestibilities Scalloped rectangle
Random ribbon and pearls from my personal stash
Quick, clean and simple!
Now, I better go do some housework ;-( !
Thanks for looking and comments are greatly appreciated.

Mojo 255

Good Morning! I made this card to encourage a friend that needs a little support. I really like this simple sketch for a simple message. 

I used: - Verve stamp sets - 'Swan Song' and 'Starstruck'
           - SU Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake CS
           - SU Crumb Cake and Early Espresso pads
           - DSP is retired SU 'Elegant Soiree'
           - Copic E43
           - SU Texture Plate 'Elegant Lines'
           - SU Red Riding Hood pleaded ribbon
           - Nestibilities Circle & Scalloped Circles dies
           - random ivory pearls from my bling stash.
First, I sponged the Very Vanilla cs with Crumb Cake ink. Next. I embossed the Vanilla with 'Elegant Lines' and used it with the depressed side up. I stamped the swan from Verve's "Swan Song' set with SU Early Espresso; highlighted the image with Copic E43, added an ivory pearl for the head and layered the swan in 5 layers with dimensional onto Vanilla and Crumb Cake cut with my dies. I used the sentiment from Verve's 'Starstruck' and stamped it with Early Espresso also.  I added a little SU Red Riding Hood pleaded ribbon for a touch of colour. I layered it all up with dimensionals (12 layers total!! - a new record - LOL) and added a couple more pearls. Ta-da!!!!

Mojo 254

Hey! I thought I could do something with Mojo 254.  I haven't been feeling great but I really wanted to enjoy making a card with this sketch. I love this SU DSP 'Springtime Vintage' and I love the digital stamp from A Day for Daisies. She is so lovely! I cut and enlarged one of the little bluebirds for an accent. I used my beloved Copics, SU Very Vanilla ; Baja Breeze and Always Artichoke CS. Ribbon and buttons are Baja Breeze as well. I cut out the pretty girl and the bluebird and popped them with dimensionals. The sentiment is from SU 'Word Play' stamp set.
That's all for now. Maybe I'll be up for a new Mojo challenge next week.
