Got Some Mojo Monday??

Happy Monday Everyone.... Here is today's Mojo Monday's Sketch #83....So so fun, look there is another butterfly...ha!! I didn't use Martha Stewart Today I used EK Success. Well. I figured I should post this first thing this am after completing it because, well I hurt my ankle last weekend and I am just now walking back to normal.. So needless to say my house is a disaster men only clean so much you know....!!! So I have a ton to do today!!! This is my first Mother's Day Card, I am going to try this a little different and list my supplies and then tell you step by step how I created this card.
Here is the recipe!
- Basic Black Cardstock
- Pretty in Pink
- Baja Breeze
- Basic Grey Urban Prairie Collection
- Cuttle Bug Bubbles Folder
- Su Ribbon
- Cloud 9 Rain Dots
- EK Success Butterfly Punch
- SU Scallop Punch
- Black Stickles
- Copics
- My Favorite Things Image
First I cut a 5X5 piece of cardstock. I then layered the bg cardstock on the black and cut it. I then ran a piece of 4 x4 piece of cardstock through the cuttlebug and attached it to the black. Attached them both to the card base. I then used the SU scallop punch to punch a border, stamped the setiment, added rain dots, then attached ribbon. I then placed that on the card. I then stamped the image with staz on and colored with copics. Layered and attached to card. Next, I punched two butterflies layered them, took off the antennas on the blue butterfly, added stickles, and pop dotted it on my card.... I think I got it all now....!!! Hope everyone has a Happy Monday!
