Mojo 189

Happy Monday everybody! I am in a superb mood because I studied my butt off and got a 49/50 on my Pathophysiology exam! Yipee! Now if I can just do that well on my final exam! Time will tell.

Anyway it was time to get some Mojo going. This card is a 5 1/2" X 5 1/2" square card.
The ship is from The Open Sea set (SU Summer Mini) & the happy birthday is from SU Occasions Mini hostess set Something to Celebrate - which is now retired.
Everything is stamped in Early Espresso. Cardstock colors are Night of Navy, Early Espresso, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White and Cherry Cobbler. The dies are all from Spellbinders: circles, lacey circles and tags. The DSP is the Brights Pattern DSP Stack from the SU IB&C and the Cherry Cobbler DSP is from Botanical Gazette from the Occasions Mini (now retired).
I sponged over the ship with (top to bottom)Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango, Cherry Cobbler and then Night of Navy for the water. I sponged Tangerine Tango around the TT cardstock circle and tag also. I took my Night of Navy marker and filled in the water. Because I didn't mask off the ship when I sponged I colored in the sails with a white gel pen to make them more realistic. I used Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain ribbon (retired) because I don't have the current Early Espresso. I couldn't figure how to pop holes in my ribbon for brads without ruining it. Enter in faux brads. I punched out Tangerine Tango, Night of Navy and Cherry Cobbler circles, glued them on and then used crystal effects to make them shine. I punched the border with SU's scallop trim border and finished it off with some Cherry Cobbler baker's twine from the new Summer Mini. Have a great night! - Heidi
