I'm back!!

Hello friends! I'm back!!! I just noticed that my last post was like 2 months ago, I can't believe it. I'm soo sorry about that, I just had to take a break from blogging because work was taking almost all my time and energy and Mr. Mojo left for vacations too, so I had 2 long months of looking at my scrapbook desk and feeling uninspired to create something.
My cousin gets married this sunday in California, unfortunately I'm not going to be able to go to her wedding because of work but my dad just left yesterday to California in representation of my family :) because my mom and brother can't make it either, I really hope he takes a lot of pictures! And of course... I wanted to create a card for my cousin and future cousin even though I'm sooo behind on challenges and card trends, etc. but before my "break" from crafting I bought 2 Penny Black stamp sets, I have to blame Kath, Debby and Carole on this because I'm starting to become a Penny Blank fan by looking at their gorgeous cards! Since I don't have any wedding related stamps I used one of my favorite  Penny Black stamp, I hope you like it, because oh boy! It took me a lot of time to decide on papers, sketch, embellishments!! I tell ya, I'm soo out of shape on making cards (if you can say it like that lol) and don't even mention scrapbook pages lol! I haven't done any in such a long time and I have a lot of pictures that are screaming to be use lol.

For this card I used s.e.i papers that I got from Michaels, prima flowers, Recollections pearls, Colorbok die cut leave, Fiskars border punch, Pop it! Shapes for the 3D look and ribbon/charm from my stash.

 I really like to do 3D looks on cards, it looks soo cute and it's fun! My Fiskars paper trimmer is asking for new replacement blades, but I don't know where to buy them because I heard bad comments on buying replacements blades online because Fiskars makes different kind of blades that you can't know for sure which ones are right for your paper trimmer :( soo I guess I just have to keep using these ones until I have a chance get new ones, but hey! I love the distress look it gives to the cards so I'm not really complaining lol.

I'd like to enter this card to the following challenges:
- Creative Card Crew: die cuts
- Magical Crafts Fortnightly: flower power
- Papertake Weekly: sketch
- The ABC Challenge: you and me
- Cute Card Thursday: summer theme

Happy stamping!
