Mojo Monday ~ Simple Friendship

Well, it's been quite the week! We pick the best dates in my family for parties it seems. LOL With my poor daughter in the hospital last week, the craft fair and family party on Saturday, I'm still tuckered out! My daughter Alexis is doing much better. Thanks so much for all the well wishes.

Today, I'm headed over to the school with her to volunteer in her classroom. :D I really love that my stamping job allows me to be there for these things. I don't want to miss anything!

Well ~ I had time for a quick mojo card this morning. So I love everything about this card! I did get a little carried away with the flourishes.. but what can ya do? :D

Base: 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
Layer 2: artichoke 5 x 3 3/4"
Layer 3 crumb cake 4 7/8" x 3 5/8"
Layer 4: designer paper, same size as layer 3, but cut in half from corner to corner.
Instead of layer 5, I added a pleated ribbon.
Layer 6: Artichoke 3" circle cut with the big shot
Layer 7: Very Vanilla 2 1/2" circle punch
Layer 8 and 9: stamped and hand cut butterfly, cut out of very vanilla matching cardstock.

After cutting all the paper, I stamped my butterfly on scratch paper and cut her out. :D I also stamped the flower at the same time.. I used blender pens and scribbled on the top of my stamp set with a baja blue marker, and picked that up with a blender pen to add color to my flower..

I added a strip of delicate self adhesive pearls and added one larger pearl at the top.

Looking at the sketch (oops) i think i missed a layer on the left, but I think this is so pretty, I don't want to go and change it now! :D I do love a good sketch challenge and love them as a jumping off point for designing.

I had fun making this one! I hope that you have a wonderful week... I'm still trying to catch up on rest, but I suppose there's no rest for the weary! :D

Have a great week!
Rubbah hugs,
Selene Kempton
