Mojo Monday 254 - Card Challenge

Well, here's another shot at a Mojo Monday (MOJO254 - card #48) challenge.  I used the design offered by the design team and then posted on their blogspot -  I hope you enjoy.

Here is the design I started from.  As I contemplated my card this week, I think of my bestie who is always by my side when I need her most.  We've known each other since 1996 and both have been thru good times and bad times...  And have leaned on each other for love, support and strength!  Her name is Theresa and she is also a quilter and scrapbooker and Harley rider as am I!  Two souls so perfectly matched...

I wanted to do something special for her because of all the moral support she gives me.  I started with some fun scrap papers I had and just started playing with two stamp sets I have from Close To My Heart:  Tailor Made C1442 and Stitched Together C1459.  I love to sew and both of these stamp sets totally play into that obsession!

I decided for the ribbon, I'd use the stamped stitch lines (borders) to make the ribbon, then cut a Cricut flower from my Art Philosophy cartridge Z1686.  I used light purple and dark orange to distress the edges and then topped it off with a shear ribbon from the scrap box and some bittys and clear sparkles to finish it off.

Materials Used:
My Acrylix stamp - Tailor Made
My Acrylix stamp - Stitched Together
Autumn Terracotta Exclusive Inks
Petal Exclusive Inks
Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge
Clear Sparkles
ScorPal adhesive
Tombow Adhesive

Here is a little touch I added with a button stamp to tie up the stitching - I do love how it ties in the whole stitches theme...
Here is the card inside message....  I do love her 'sew' much!  :)  I hope you enjoyed my challenge card today - please do leave comments and tell me what you think.  And I'd really love to have you join to get updates from my blog - just click the 'Join this Site' button on the left side bar.
