Sentimental Sundays - New or Neglected Stash (an attempt to perform a CPR on dead mojo)

Another Sunday has arrived and with it a new challenge from Sentimental Sundays. This time it's to use something new or neglected.

This card was a poor attempt to awaken dead mojo by experimenting heavily with heat embossing and neglected border stamps from Autumn Leaves. As a result it looks a total mess and serves as a warning to all of you who take your mojo granted.

The brads have been in my stash forever, same goes for all the scraps of lace I used. The sentiment is from Whiff Of Joy.

The image is new from A Day For Daisies Etsy shop, printed on pearlescent card in sepia and coloured with Copics.

COPIC list:
Skin: E50, E51, E53
Hair: E49, E47, E37, YR14
Basket: E57, E35, E43
Apples: R59, R27, R14, R02, YG21
Dress: YG99, YG67, YG03, YG0000
Blue "glow": BG13, BG32, BG10, BG000
Grounding: W7, W5, W3, W1, W00

Don't forget to check out the gorgeous work of Sentimental Sundays DT and grab our weekly freebie sentiment set!

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Your coloring is to die for (well, perhaps I won't go that far) but girl, you have a gift and apparently you are the ONLY one that doesn't see that! End of Mom lecture! You are WONDERFUL!!!

Honestly, we are our own worst critics!!! I just saw this on Sentimental Sundays, my jaw dropped in amazement and I rushed over to tell you how much I LOVE it. The border embossing in the dark brown is simply stunning! Well, honestly, everything is stunning!
