More Amour is the key

 I finally got around to making this weeks Mojo Monday sketch, I took a couple of liberties with the original blueprints so to speak! I'm trying to utilize some of the stamp sets I "had to have" but have yet to press into an ink pad, this is one such set! I have not had had the good fortune to visit the city of love yet, but a girl can dream....fingers crossed that I will get the chance to photograph the Eiffel tower someday!
A year ago I would have promised you that chocolate chip ink from Stampin' up! would be my favorite until the end of time.....but early espresso has moved up into the coveted favorite spot! Its a deeper richer brown, and I LOVE it!!!

A crochet flower generously spritzed with log cabin shimmer spray almost looks like it was stained with coffee grounds, love that look! This little key embellishment was a decorative paperclip that I have been holding onto for.....lets just say a few years, I bit the bullet and clipped it off so it could have a new home on my card of amour, filled with little details that I love!
