Be Mine mojo Monday color challenge

Hi everyone! I am sorry I did not get to post my mojo Monday card until today. We have had sick girls in the house- yuck! So here it is a day late but hopefully not a dollar short lol. This is also for the color challenge on SCS today as well. Below is the sketch and my sample.

This adorable little mouse is a digital image from Sweet N Sassy stamps called Be Mine Cocoa. This is perfect for Valentine's day and because it is a digi you can get it right away and don't have to wait for it to come in. If you like Cocoa then you will be happy to know that there is an entire series featuring him! I colored my image with copics and accented the hearts with a spica glitter pen. All of the edges were sponged with ink to distress and the sewed. I also made a coordinating envelope and decorated the inside also.

Closer look:

stamps- Sweet N Sassy "Be Mine Cocoa" digital stamp
CS- kraft, white, Basic grey bittersweet dp
accessories/tools- spica glitter pen, heart punches, pearls, cb heart folder, button slide, taffeta ribbon kraft, sewing machine, copics

Of course the mojo makers have some fabulous cards to show you with this week's sketch so stop on by the mojo Monday blog to check them out!!

Thanks for visiting today and have a terrific day!
