Mojo Monday #253

So glad I was able to find the time to play with Mojo Monday today!  For starters, I love the layers…secondly I really needed this card made!  Here is the original sketch-

I chose the new Avonlea paper line to complete my card.  My shapes are completed with a mix of Avonlea Complements Canvas Shapes and Cricut Artiste die cuts. 
I made my own "chipboard" numbers by layering cardstock together.  I cut out my numbers four times, ran them through my Xyron and stacked them together.  I heat embossed the top layer with Iridescent Embossing Powder to give a little bling.  All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:

Z1790 Cricut Artiste Collection
X7155B Avonlea Paper Packet
X7155C Complements Canvas Shapes
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
D1283 Say It In Style
Z1802 Slate Satin Ribbon
Z2173 Slate Ink
Z891 VersaMark Ink
Iridescent Embossing Powder-SU

    What an absolutely gorgeous card! I love the diecut behind the number...the backing papers are very different but work so well together. The attention to detail in this card is amazing and finished off perfectly with that gorgeous bow.
