Copper Elegance, my almost Mojo49 sketch

Today my boys decided they wanted to play outside in the rain, so I took that opportunity to play along with Julee's Mojo Monday sketch #49! I got out the stamps, DP and embossing powder I wanted to use and got to work. But, this was one of those days where none of my ideas worked. Ugh! I ended up simplifying my card and I couldn't for the life of me get that last little circle part of the sketch to work. Oh well, it is my ALMOST Mojo49 -LOL!

I finally got a new heat gun, so I can finally emboss!! Had to celebrate by embossing on this card. I chose a piece of DP from my Luxury Stack by DCWV, it had some coppery swirls on it, so copper EP it was. I used the scroll from Verve's Grateful Elegance set and the square sentiment is from the Artful Elegance set. I rarely ever use copper accents, I am mostly an "aged copper" girl, but they worked for this, so I used a combination of circle and squares. The primas have a touch of Star Dust Stickles on them.
