Mojo Monday

I finally figured out how to get the sketch to load on my blog. :) Julee over at http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com has a mojo sketch every Monday and I like to play along most times. This challenge has a chance of being picked as one of her favorite submissions and winning a free Verve stamp set. Go check it out. If nothing else you'll get a card made!

My card uses the Serenity set and the Fluttering by set from Verve Visual. I really do love these stamps. The polka dots were stamped with my Polka Dot Basics set from PTI. I used the new Kraft color also from PTI,and black and white cardstock.

I wanted a look that would go well with the strip of crocheted edging I made yesterday. I like how it came out.

The blue ink is Indian Corn Blue from CTMH and the black is Versafine Onyx Black. The stamped image behind the sentiment was stamped in Versamark and chalked with my pearlesent chalks. The butterfly was stamped on the card and then again on Kraft, cut out and popped up. The pussy willows and butterfly wing edges were given a bit of sparkle with my Sakura Stardust pen. I added 3 black brads and a bit of sewing to finish it off. Hope you like it too!
