Mojo Monday Challenge -124

Hello, I'm back again... what a lovely afternoon I've had... enjoyed the coffee, hope you did too and then I settled down to make another card, just in time for the Mojo Monday Challenge.  A quick and easy sketch, go check it out quickly!  This time there are prizes up for grabs, so you'd better get going... Here's my little creation, hope you like it.

I love this Lute Angel playing the mandolin. To all the professionals out there, please excuse my cutting out of this image, but my specs were playing up and I really struggled with this one. I think I should have left her and cut a square or whatever other shape around her, but then you wouldn't have been able to see the nice DP!

Base: Pale pink bazzill cardstock
DP: Upikit International - double side paper - GP4057  I've used both sides on this card as you can see
Image: Lute Angel, Stampendous coloured in with my Copics and glittered for a bit of sparkle
Embellishments: Brown and white spotted ribbon.  The hearts were cut out with my new heart cutter and I just added pearls and a rose for added effect
Sentiment: A stunning new stamp inked for the first time for this card. Just fitted perfectly inside the heart

Took the picture from a different angle so that you can see the glitter.

Another angle, so that you can see how the image was raised using spongy sticky double-sided tape (what on earth is the right word, will someone please tell me as this is a bit of a mouthful. Thank you!)  Sometimes I wonder if anyone ever reads all these Ingredients - would be nice if you could let me know when you leave a comment ;)

Thanks so much for visiting, I've really enjoyed spending the afternoon with you and reading all your comments.  I am soooo pleased that I'm not the only one who likes to spend! Celia really had me laughing at her comment and dear Sandra too.  Thanks for providing a few laughs ladies.  It's been such fun chatting with you, until next time... happy crafting!  Tons of hugs Sharon xx
