My Two Hearts mojo and inspiration

One of my FAVORITE layout challenges every week is Julee's Mojo Monday sketch. This week I combined her sketch challenge (here) with her Verve Visual inspiration challenge. You can click on the amazing inspiration photo to view here.

I was inspired by the colors and the swirl pattern in the bedspread. I used my much loved Anniversary Birds set (LOVE their swirly tails) and decked them out with glitter! The 3 thin strips are stamped randomly with the Priceless small swirl and the banana panel is stamped with Aida Cloth. I also stamped the little wings with banana, popped them up and covered them and their tails in glitter. The image panel is also stamped with Aida Cloth in banana and edged in glitter. The brads in the center of the primas are dipped in versamark and embossed with kaleidoscope EP and then dipped in glitter and the primas are covered in Stardust Stickles! Glitter, glitter, glitter -see a pattern here? Super sparkly IRL.

Card deets:
Paper - black, red, banana, white
Stamps - anniversary birds by Verve Visual, priceless, aida cloth
Accessories - dew drops, glitter, rectangle nesties, red satin ribbon, primas, white brads and kaleidoscope EP
