Butterfly duo and a sketch

Hi all,

Second post today! I guess it's safe to say Mr. mojo has finally made an appearance...

It does help to have inspiration though. How often do you find you're browsing Blogger and find yourself inspired, not by a challenge, but by one of the DT inspiration? This is what happened to me this morning when I came across the Make mine a double challenge at the Becka B challenge blog. One of the DT - Ilonka - made a card with two butterflies in a frame, which made me want to get the dies out to play immediately!

I'd also just spotted the gorgeous sketch by Becky for the challenge over at Live & love crafts, so I combined the two and came up with this:

The frame is from Fernli Designs, and I painted it with Picket Fence and Spun Sugar distress paints, then embossed it with shabby pink Frantage. The paper is a gorgeous unbranded pack I picked up at the Harrogate craft fair in October. I'm hoping to find more, as there were only one of each sheet. If anyone recognises them, please do holler!

Right, that's definitely it from me today. I think, lol.

Have a great one!

A very gorgeous frame for these 2 pink butterflies. Love the distressing, the wonderful rose paper and the gorgeous florals you've tucked in to add so much more beauty to this card. I'm glad your MoJo has returned. Wish mine would! TFS & HUgs

I'm glad Mr Mojo made a reappearance (such a fickle chap!) and in style I would say judging by this stunning card. I might be biased because of all the pink but I love your shabby chic design with the pretty flowers and butterflies :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
