Mojo's Silver Lining

Good morning folks :) 

I've been fortunate to get a moment to myself of late, 
so I took the opportunity to play along with some of my favorite challenges! 

The Shabby Tea Room has a gor-gor-gorgeous inspiration picture this week and the challenge is Aqua, Brown and a touch of silver.  When I saw this pop up on my blog roll on Monday I just could not resist and had to play along....

So I played :)


Ohh I had so much fun making this, so much so, that I crafted way past my curfew and I did not want to get out of bed this morning lol But ... It was sooooo worth it! :)

I am absolutely in love with the square lattice embossing folder from Stampin Up at the moment (I don't know why? I just am!) and I am also going through a craze of inking my embossing folders so I had to do that too with Versa Mark Sky Blue ink.  The sentiment along with the dies are from of the Amazing Paper Grace kits that I have again stamped in the Sky Blue and also heat clear embossed and distressed the edges with TH Tea Stain.

I really had no plan of attack with this card, I kind of just crafted and let things go where ever they went.  So for the silver lining of the challenge, I first decided to add some metallic silver stitching around the edges and as the card came together the silver butterfly charm made its way into the card and then the glittered silver sprigs in the flower embellishments.  

I am not sure why, but I had the brain wave to grab a bobbin and decorate it as well in the same style.  And for the little dust collector it is, I think it is a perfect trinket to go with the card.  Mojo seems to have found his groove again so hopefully I will be back soon with something else new to share :)

Fair winds and following seas till then xx
