What's Better Than...? Mojo Monday 103

Hey! Hello! I'm back from being MIA...it's the first Friday of the year!!! I came straight home after work and right up to the studio :) Ah, bliss! So what's better than one button bouquet? Two!! LOL. I knew I wanted to use my longlost love, button bouquet, but needed a rectangular image so I stamped it twice :) I played around with the buttons while on the phone with my sister (shhhhh!). The bottom of the card took on a life of it's own. I originally wanted to have patterned paper there, but nothing was working with the purple dp and polka dots so I left it blank. Then the bling came out and I was no longer in charge!! Have you checked out any of the Mojo Monday sketches? I am amazed at how many people enter each week...it has quite a following (and rightly so...) but it's crazy!! This week is contest week so 7 cards will be chosen and free Verve stamps will be given away :) Here's my entry....I am looking forward to stamping this weekend...I hope you have a fabulous one as well :)




What's in it?
Stamps: SU flower filled, Verve thankful blossoms
Paper: PTI white, avocado, plum pudding, dp; SU choc chip, kraft
Ink: SU old olive, choc chip
Accessories: EK Success edge punch; gemstones; MS butterfly punch; PTI ribbon, assorted buttons ($ store)

This looks great. I like the butterfly and bling and that fabulous thank you. My attempt will have to wait until tomorrow night...if I'm not too tired.

So pretty! I love the colors! And for the tutorial on bows, I'll have to think about that one! I don't know if I can teach anyone how to do it! :) Let me get my craft area clean first! :)

what a fabulous Mojo card, Maureen!!! Your creative genes must have been saving up all week to burst forth in great splender! Just love what you've done here! The double bouquet is perfect as is the button arrangement (thank you sister for the call LOL). Love the butterfly with bling on the ribbon. From what I've seen you should be in the running for some new Verve. Well done!

Hope your first week went well. Enjoy stamping this weekend :D and stamp for me as I'm crazy busy this weekend and won't have time.

Beautiful! I love the little jewels at the bottom. That's one of my favorite things to do next to a sentiment. And congrats on surviving the first week!! How are your kiddos?
