Mojo Monday 375

I haven't played at Mojo Monday for a while, I always save the challenge, but then the week is gone before I get to making a card.  This week I made a point of playing.  I really liked the sketch provided.

 I got out a new stencil that I have had for a bit, but haven't dirtied up at all.  I started with Hero Arts silver ink. After it dried I adjusted the Zig Zag Dot Stencil from SSS to the uninked spaces and filled them with embossing paste and Distress Glitter in rock candy.  I then set the panel aside to dry.

I grabbed a piece of patterned paper that I have been hoarding for at least 4 years and I CUT it!  (I DO by American Crafts)  

Next I pulled out several dies, the heart from Lawn Fawn's Stitched Party Banners, the small Love from SSS, and pierced rectangles from MFT.  I cut a matching heart out of the left over of the strip I cut for the side using the same patterned side.  I cut the love 3 times from the back side of the patterned paper, and then I cut my center panel from the embossed and inked piece.  Everything was glued in place with the sketch layout in mind.  

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I'm so happy to see someone else intends to do the challenges, but falls short. *glares at stack of undone challenges*

Also, I LOVE that you've used two techniques with the same stencil on the same piece of paper! I'm going to have to CASE this idea.
