Beautiful Kindness and a Butterfly Mojo

Hello Everyone!

Well after yet another crafting break, I decided to jump right back into the creative arena and get my crafty juices flowing again. Life has just been so very crazy lately, I haven't had the time to do any crafting. Which has been OK, because to be honest, I haven't been much in the mood to do any crafting. I hit a slump, was more like a brick wall! I had no desire at all to do anything crafty.
I realized today that I was ready to give it a whirl again, so I looked to this week's Mojo Monday sketch for some inspiration. This sketch was fun and easy to work with and one that could be easily adapted with a variety of shapes. I used some papers from Basic Grey, card stock from PTI and the "Beautiful Kindness" set from Verve Stamps.
I stamped the butterfly on white paper with Peeled Paint distress ink and then used BG10 Copic Marker to color in the center and then I added some Black stickles and some star dust stickles to it as well.
It's not the best picture, so I do apologize for that; but I think I did pretty well for my first jump back into the arena!

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Catered Crop: Buttons
PanPastel UK Challenge Blog: Anything Goes
Crafty Cardmakers: No floral embellishments
Lexi's Creations: Anything Goes
Mojo Monday: Sketch
The Crazy Challenge: Tic Tac Toe: (I chose the ribbon, embossing, and a die cut shape)

Have a great evening everyone!!
