Something New.........almost!

The challenge over at Speedy the Cat's Friend's blog this week is to use something "new." I found this used stamp at a store sale last week for less than $2, but it's new to me since I just got it! I stamped it on red & black color blocks with versamark ink, then embossed it with white opaque ep. I added some silver deco pen accents to all the ribbons on the image and added a red prima flower with a silver heart-shaped brad to the center. The sentiment panel was cut with my fancy label by Spellbinders and threaded with ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is by Sweet 'n Sassy, done in versafine onyx black ink.
I think Santa Claus took my mojo back to the north pole with him, because I can't seem to find it today! This card took the entire afternoon to create! All these great goodies I was gifted with at Christmas and my mojo goes on vacation. I don't get it!? LOL
Have a great day everyone!

Well, for lost mojo this sure turned out awesome! Thanks for playing with Speedy's Friends!

Wow! What a beauty and that image is awesome. You sure work well with no mojo and I feel better knowing it took someone besides me a whole afternoon to create a card. Sometimes, that is just how it goes. Hope your mojo comes back quickly, though.
