MOJO 353’s Blooming Tonight

BWH Step Up


BWHStep Up 2


This is my second MOJO Monday card this week. This is a stepped up version of the sketch. I used a similar color scheme and made a few changes. I couldn’t decide which one I liked better so I’m posting them both and hoping you will help me decide. I enjoy reading your comments. Keep them positive or I might just hit delete.

This qualifies for a stepped up version because I added several new techniques. You’ll find paper embossing, three dimensional flowers, and heat embossing. You’ll want to hand deliver this one or create a special box if you want to mail. It might require a little additional postage. It’s also a contest week. Jump in, you might get your feet wet but it will be fun.
