A Masquerade for Mojo Monday #429.....

Hello everyone: Well, I'm slowly getting back into the card making swing of things, the Holidays are behind us and now, we have January to kind of get that Mojo going again and what better way than with the awesome MOJO MONDAY challenges, which are always fun, this first challenge is a sketch one and here is my card.

I wanted to step away a little bit from all the Holiday cards I've been making lately and give this challenge a bit of pop. I used a Verve stamp set called MASQUERADE , I adore this beautiful masks, which have a matching DIE SET , right now, both this items are on sale so go check them out. 
I stamped the images onto scraps of Canson water color paper, because I wanted something with a little dimension and I heat embossed them with SU Tempting Turquoise and Crushed Curry embossing powders, I did the same with the handle for both masks. I used some retired SU DSP and I apologize for not having the name of the collection. The little feathers are also heat embossed with Tempting Turquoise but, since there is no die for them, I paper snipped them. I so wish there was a die for them too.
The sentiment is from "My Art" from Hobby Lobby, the card stock is from my stash. I added a few sequences too, just for a little more festive look.

Here is a picture of the inside.

Here is the banner that inspired this card.


Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
