lots of mojo?

I made this lovely card for Mojo Monday on the Poetic Artistry blog. On the first Monday of the month Julee picks the two mojo-est cards and those two people get to choose a set of their choice for free from Verve Stamps...now why would I not try for that? You all should too!

So, this card is made with the Verve Stamp set called Petals & Stems and is actually a set that I won from Julee! The colors are Soft Sky, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, and PTI White. I don't recall where the designer paper is from but I do love it. I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder to carry over the dots from the flowers as well as the dots in the scallops. Although the sentiment isn't in a circle I still think it works. I can't used those butterflies without making a 3-D butterfly so the butterfly on this card is 3-D and uses Blue Bayou on the sides and Soft Sky in the front. The green on the middle layer is actually a piece of stitched ribbon just placed down further so you can only see the top stitch. There is lots of bling but it doesn't show well. I used my stardust pen for the flower and the butterfly. There is Frosted Lace Stickles in the scallops, and Dot Sparklers from Stampendous in the corner.

I was reading the parent dispatch from the camp that Kyler is at and it said that the campers had some FOB time yesterday. Are you wondering what FOB time is? Flat On Bunk time...which means...the campers are tired, probably a little squirrelly and stinky and they need to have some down time. How funny is that?! I can just imagine what he'll be like when he gets home! I think we'll have some FOB time here too!

I hope you all have a lovely
