Mojo Monday on a Thursday!

Guess what- I am finally feeling back to normal I think! I've been wanting to play along with the Mojo Monday sketch all week and finally got to it this evening! It helps that DH has my kiddos at a track meet right now.

As always I loved the sketch and was excited to play with it (this is my 10th Mojo sketch already!!). This stamp set is new to me. I hadn't planned to get it- not because I don't like it, but because I figured I could live without it (and admittedly I hadn't checked the gallery or I'd have caved a LONG time ago!) However, I stuck it on my last order thanks to a freebie from SU so here it is! Man do I love it now!

Anyway, I started with some Urban Oasis paper and just went from there. I used a blender pen with some ink picked up from the ink pad lids to color in the butterfly- love that look! To try to distinguish each layer I pierced one, roughed up one and lifted the sentiment layer with dimensionals. Don't ask me why I scalloped the top of one panel and the bottom of the other- kind of showing my quirky/funky side there I guess. I had to throw on the filigree brad for some bling- I have only 1 small one left and all big ones. And man am I getting my use out of those 5/16" jumbo brads- you can't accuse me of hoarding those babies!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by! I'm so glad to be back amongst my stamping friends!
