Saturday's Mojo Faces

It's Saturday, and that means that the super creative ladies over @ Our Creative Corner have a new challenge for us!  And you won't be disappointed!  We have a wonderfully talented hostess this week, asking us to use 'faces' in our submission this week.  How clever and oh my, lets see what you create!
I got my inspiration for Mojo Monday #211.  Here is the sketch:


Here is my card:


Ok, the face isn't stamped.  And the funny thing is, that I have a stamp that is very similar to this image.  But, for some reason, I just could not get the mojo working.  I wanted a CAS card, so that the 'face' wouldn't compete with anything else.  I selected simple embellishments, and added little touches.  The button is hand-sewn on.  The tags were individually hand-threaded.  I chose a plain pink background panel, to help bring out the pinks in the flowers, that are in the tag.  I put the card onto Early  easpresso cardstock, to help bring out some of the browns and darker lines.  I added a vintage brad to the tag.
Thank you for stopping by, and I hope that you have been inspired!
