Mojo Monday #209 - October 3, 2011 - Butterfly

Are you getting your Mojo on?  This is the sketch challenge for Monday October 3.  Top picks this week receive a set of Verve stamp set of their choice!  You can get the details here:

I just got the Papillon set of stamps from Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous and used them as my starting point for the challenge this week.   I like how the images look like they are from an insect field guide. 

I put the focus of my card - the butterfly - in neutral to draw your eye to it.  I used the K & Co. Tim Coffey Blossomwood paper collection because I like the "fabric" look it has and how it lends a little texture to my card.
Of course, you know me, I had to put some bling in there somewhere.  If I'm going to make a card I want it to be extra special and a little sparkle never hurts!   I included a big fat two color seam binding bow with a big gem bauble in the center, and a swirl of turquoise gems to give my butterfly a little magic.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!  I hope you are having a great day!
