Margarita Mojo 128 ~

Mmmm...margaritas!  I love them...they don't love me so much!  LOL  We have this place in Northern Colorado called The Rio - this restaurant is known less for it's food and more for it's fabulous margaritas!  The recipe is secret and super strong - the limit is 3.  Anyhow, I'm sure you're wondering why I'm talking about margaritas.  My color combo today (and tomorrow for that matter) reminds me of the lovely margarita.  Aqua Mist, Gable Green/Green Galore, Black and white.
I used the sketch for Mojo Monday sketch #128 for today's card.  The circular element couldn't just be a circle, so I used the flower from Thankful Blossoms.   
It is embossed 3 times in Versamagic Onyx black and clear filigree embossing powder.  The center of each flower is sponged with Gable Green and the outer petals are Aqua Mist.  The bottom layer of the flower is cut in half and spread apart to make the flower just a bit larger.  Each layer is set up on dimensionals.  The second layer has some little green rhinestones on the swirls - a little extra bling makes a girl happy  :o)  The sentiment is a combination between Verve's Because of You and PTI's Mother
Ok, I'm off to finish dinner.  Hope you all have a great Sunday evening!  :o) lyss
