Mojo Monday #181

This week's Mojo Monday Challenge was just that for me.... a Challenge.   The design was angles, circles, different patterns, you name it and it was there!   I had been working with April's Stamp of the Month - Blessed and the new Miracle Level 2 Paper all weekend.   On Sunday night I was playing around with one of the stamps thinking about doing a circle card.   I stamped the bird image a few times before finally getting something that I was happy with.   It was late so I set the image aside to finish something the following day.   When the Mojo Monday Challenge was posted the next morning I knew I had a starting point with my stamped bird!  So I began creating my card around the bird!  I was excited to get to use the Kraft Color Ready Borders with this card.  I matted the bird with our new Kraft cardstock.   I actually used my corner round (with the guard removed) to turn the plain circle into a scallop circle!

Here is the Mojo Design:

Here is my Mojo Monday #181 entry!

The flourishes are our new Irresistables Villa Chipboard Die-cuts.   The ribbon flower is my first attempt at making a flower from ribbon.   I just threaded one side of the ribbon and pulled it, then wrapped it around and stitched the bottom together.   I added a little pearl to the center.    I need to do this a few more times to perfect it I think.    Here is a closer view that shows the scattered pearls and also the chipboard flourishes.   I inked the chipboard flourished with a sponge dauber.
