Mojo Embrace Life

I had some time to play along with the latest Mojo Monday Sketch.  I decided instead of using a scalloped circle die cut piece of some kind, I'd use this large scalloped flower from Dream Big.  Once I decided to use the Winter Frost Collection from WeRMemory Keepers, I chose the color for my flower.  I stamped the large flower in Island Indigo ink from Stampin' Up.  The new ink stays wet a little longer, so I quickly added clear embossing powder over top and heat embossed the flower.  Next I sprinkled glitter over the flower and re-heat it.  The glitter became embedded in the flower.  I hand cut the large flower, but the smaller flower was die cut using the Scalloped Flowers Die Set.  I layered it on top of the first and added a Prima Crystal to the center. 

I die cut leaves using the Dreamy Leaves Die Set, then stamped them with the coordinating stamp from the set.  I tucked them behind the flower to create the focal piece on the card.  I used the Flourished Trim Die twice to create a border and then stamped the sentiment going up the side of the card.  As a finishing touch, I added stitching to the card.  Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you're having a great day!  SUPPLIES USED:  Stamps- Dream Big (Verve Stamps); Ink- Island Indigo, Wild Wasabi (SU); Paper- Winter Frost (WeRMemory Keepers); Accessories- Scalloped Flowers Die Set, Dreamy Leaves Die Set, Flourished Trim Die (Verve Stamps), crystal (Prima);  Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
