Looking for my mojo

I am sorry if you feel that you have seen this card before.... It is quite similar to the card I made just a few days ago. The same stamp and the same sketch... but I am still looking for my mojo, so I just have to go with what works.
 I hope you will forgive me :)
Actually, when I put the two cards next to each other, they do not look a like at all - so I do give myself a little encouraging clap on the back and tell myself  "Well done!" 

The background was made using LOC brick wall stamp, a french script stamp and a postmarkstamp. They where all embossed in black. Then I rubbed over part of the paper with Walnut stain Distress stain, and then sprayed over with homemade Aged Mahogany glimmermist. The dresstand is from Tim Holtz and was layered 3 times. I tried to take a photo showing the layers, but my cat loves feathers, so I just had to save the card from her, sorry about that :)
 I don't know where the wings are from, but they are covered with Cinamon stickles for some extra sparkle. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hi Gunn, If you can create like this with no mojo then I wouldn't worry too much, it's lovely. The layers and texture are fab even if kitty did have a paw in. Thank you for sharing this with us at Smudgy Antics this week and hope you visit again very soon

The girls have said it all! Majority rules. Your mojo is still strong even if it isn't doing what you've expected from it. You have churned out a dynamic project with lush textures and fabulous layers. The overall design rocks too. If you're this good when you're having an off day, your creations on a good day must be out of this world! Thanks for sharing with Smudgy Antics :)
