Mojo Monday Sketch - 123

Mojo Monday sketch challenge this week is from Teresa Kline and offered the choice of a round or square format.

I knew when I saw the sketch that I wanted to play, as I am really fond of circle cards.

Here is the results of one of the cards I started for this sketch. The main image is the Hero Arts Silhouette Bells. Love this stamp! I embossed the background with Zing chocolate embossing powder and then sponged in the background color and added a little white coloring pencil around the edges to lighten up the sponging.
The edges of the ivory surfaces have been sponged with a brown dye ink and stamped using versafine vintage sepia.
I had such a great day yesterday... in addition to my fun news with Hero Arts, I also received my March Cardmaker magazine in the mail from them. I have a card posted in the magazine and had forgotten about it so was pleasantly surprised to get the magazine in the mail! I also blogged over on the Outside the Box blog with a favorite card of mine!
I also wanted to say thank you to everyone for their wonderful comments yesterday, here, the Flickr group, on the HA blog and even over on SCS. I recieved so many kind words from everyone which were really unexpected and very appreciated.
