MoJo Monday #33

I'm a little late this week with my MoJo Monday card for Julee Tilman's weekly challenge. I really liked this week's sketch and am pretty happy with how my card turned out!

I used my new favorite stamp set, Embrace Life. The DP paper is once again from that great piece of Scenic Route you saw me use a few days ago here and also here. The coordinating SU colors I chose to use were Wild Wasabi, Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky. The Wild Wasabi background is textured CS. I stamped the main image once in Chocolate Chip on soft sky, then again on Wild Wasabi. Using my hobby knife, I cut out each Wild Wasabi bloom and glued on top of the soft sky stamped image. This really gave the image some depth! I used my horizontal slot punch to make the ribbon holes, but looking at it here I should have punched through both the Soft Sky and the Whisper White mat to show the Chocolate Chip underneath. In case you haven't figured it out yet, my new favorite ribbon is the poly-twill - it ties so nicely!! A few rhinestone brads finished it up. What do you think?
