Mojo Monday 123: Delight In Life

Hi All,

I usually don't get to participate in this many Mojo challenges in the same month.  Woo hoo!  You can find the post HERE.  I decided to make the circular card, because that is not my usual.

My card base is Taken With Teal, and I cut it out using my scallop circle die from SU.  For the next circle layer, I used my Classic Circle Nesties, and some SEI papers (their Poppy collection). It has lots of shimmery silver all over it.  On the left side, I used a piece of Whisper White CS embossed with my Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder - I adhered a strip to the DSP circle, and trimmed the white piece to match the circle.  I put a strip of Bravo Burgundy CS along the right side of the white piece, and trimmed the top and bottom again to match the circle.  I distressed all the edges as well.

The horizontal panel is also SEI paper matted with Whisper White.  I distressed those edges as well, adhered it next to the burgundy strip, and trimmed to fit the circle.  On top of that piece, I stamped the sentiment from Miracles Blossom in Memento Tuxedo Black ink - it's kind of a cool effect because the silver parts did not accept the ink, so it looks like the sentiment is behind the silver swirls!

I added 3 SU buttons in the top right corner, all threaded with Linen Thread, and stuck with Mini Glue Dots.  I took some silver organdy ribbon, and tied a bow with my Bow Easy, and stuck it to the burgundy strip, and I stuck another button with thread on top of that.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
