Mojo Monday on Tuesday (MOJO242)

As a working mom, it's amazing that I managed to do a Mojo Monday card, and this early in the week.   I worked on it last night while hanging out with the family.  The school year is wrapping up and we've got less to tend to in the evenings.  It's actually nice to just chill.

Her's the Mojo Monday inspiration sketch.

For this card, I stamped a medallion image using a gorgeous stamp from Holly Berry House, colored it and trimmed it.   This is actually an extra stamping from when I used this image to make ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).  I colored this image with Stampin' Up markers.   The printed paper is from 6x6 pads by Authentique.  Love these papers.  The blue cardstock is Marina Mist by Stampin' Up.  I used DCWV textured brown paper as the base and some matting layers.   The butterflies are punched from some of the Authentique printed paper using Martha Stewart butterfly punches.   I added some ribbon (Espresso Grosgrain by SU and misc. beige stain) and a pearl accent at the center of the medallion.   Viola!
ETA:  I love happy accidents. Turns out this is also a good card for Tuesday Alchemy's challenge for this week, which is "butterflies".  You'll have to go over there and check it out.  They have some beautiful cards there for great inspiration.
