Mojo Monday

Good Morning

I wanted to get this posted sooner rather than later this morning since my posts have been rather late in the past couple of weeks. This is my card for Mojo Monday this week. I apologize for the pictures. I actually took my camera outside to take the pictures because I wanted to show the 3D effect of the butterfly. So I have to apologize for the shadows etc of the pictures. I'm just not that great with the camera, which is why I'm so glad I have my scanner.
The sketch was easy to work with and now that I have a new circle cutter, I'm much more relaxed about doing circles on my cards. It was really stressing me out there for a while when so many sketches had circles!!
To make the butterfly in the corner, I stamped two butterfly images from "Garden Whimsy" in Mustard and in Not Quite Navy. Then I cut them out and simply adhered the two butterfly "bodies" leaving the wings open. I created the shadow effect from the "Upsy Daisy" image by stamping first in So Saffron and then off centered the next image in Bordering Blue.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm off to finish working on more projects for my next workshop on Saturday!
