Monday Mojo 125

This is my card for the following challenges :

I started by stamping my new Stampin' Up background stamp called En Francais, in Sepia Archival ink then I sponged some Distress inks in Antique Linen and Tea Dye around the edge. I stamped the swirl, which is a Crafty Individual stamp, in Vintage Photo and also the swirl below the bow. The little pink flowers are stamped with Worn Lipstick and the stamp is from a Rubber Stamp Tapestry set. I borrowed a bowl from the kitchen and drew round it with an embossing tool and then cut the curved shape. The main image is from a Tanda Stamps set called Retro Women. I've stamped her with Archival Sepia ink and sponged Antique Linen and Tea Dye Distress inks around the edge before removing the circle Nestability. The sentiment is stamped in Blazing Red Stazon ink and cut out with Labels One Nestabilities, and I've sponged more Distress inks around the edge before removing the die.

The background paper is My Minds Eye and I've stitched around the edge as I felt it needed a little something more. The pearls are coloured with a brown peel off pen.
We headed off to the Paper Mill shop, this morning, which is about a 50 minute drive from us only to find that it's closing down and that the shop was just about empty ! I was gutted ! I've been getting all my white linen card from there for ages so I shall have to look for a new source. Don't you just hate it when that happens !
Thanks for looking
