MOJO 200!

The amazing MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge blog is celebrating their 200th sketch.  W-O-W!  And not only is it their 200th sketch; they have a whole new look.  Go ahead, check it out HERE, I'll wait!  :D

For such a great celebration, I wanted to play along.  I used one of my favorite Verve stamp sets - Blue Skies.  Amazing quotes, beautiful butterflies, delicate swirls and my favorite?  Notebook paper! 

I used lots of various DP by My Mind's Eye...ah, how I adore thee paper!  I used distressing, DTP ink edging, a quilting embossing folder (tough to see in the photos, but you "might" be able to get a glimpse in the photo with the butterfly).  The flower is made from a paperback book and spritzed with Chocolate glimmer mist, tied together with a yellow jeweled brad in the middle and mounted on 2 different die-cut doilies.  I stamped the smallest butterfly on GKD Cream paper, colored with Copics, cut out and added two layers of glitter using a clear Spica glitter pen.  So pretty IRL!

Some crocheted ribbon, sewing and 5 butterflies stamped on the inside of the card finish it off!  Love the colors - not my norm; but I like it!




Thanks for visiting!
