Mojo Monday 177 - Sweetheart Be Mine!

Hello again,

My Mojo for this week is a little late due to the Dentist wanting to pull out the remains of my tooth, which had snapped off last week whilst eating a nut bar!The snapping didn't hurt, the old tooth was dead from a root canal 20 years ago, but the pulling sure did.

This took me ages of mucking around to get it right, and I'm still not entirely happy with it.  As you would know I'm not one for making everything perfect, the sentiment is a bit too messy me thinks, but here it is anyway.

Here is a bit of a close up of the little birdie - it's from stampin up and while I don't have that punch, my friend Trish does. I dabbed green perfect pearls all over his wing and across the top. It's really shiny, but as usual doesn't show in the photos.

The background was a pretty metallic paper I picked up at my newsagency and embossed with the new Stampin Up embossing folder. I love this folder!!! Again the shine is not showing darn it!

The lace is a strip of seam from an old lace jacket that was past it's prime and much more suited to my cards lol. get it jacket - suited, small pun there.

Hope you all like my Mojo this week.

Love what you did with the lace and the background paper looks great with the embossing.I think the sentiment tag looks cute especially the stitching.
