Just Believe it's Mojo Monday

Hi everyone, What a funny old day it is today!!!  One minute it's blue sky and sun, and the next it's grey sky and rain??, it cant make up its mind what it wants to do ( a bit like me with challenges?)

Anyway, this weather gave me an idea as I sat and tried to make a card with an hour to myself in the middle of a chaotic day.

I thought I'd have a go at the Mojo Monday Challenge #205 before the weekend turns into Monday again!! Their sketch looks like this

and my card looks like this, what do you think?

I started with a white card and layered it with some yellow card that had been roughened around the edges with my scissors. I then stamped the flourish from the Bliss set in black on some grey card and put it in my BS with a labels die ( I just had to use it, I'm sorry!). While the beast was out, I cut another label in black, yellow, white, and a yellow butterfly. I then stamped the flowers and grass  from Just Believe on some white card. The grey and black labels ( with added stitches drawn in a white gel pen ) were tucked under the white panel and a grey ribbon was wrapped around it and a knot added. The Just Believe sentiment was stamped in black on the white label and sponged around the edges, and then it was placed on the yellow label which was then stuck with 3D pads to give some dimension. The finishing touch was the butterfly that also had been sponged and yellow gems added along the body.

Recipe : Card = SU Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, and grey from my stash
Stamps = Just Believe and Bliss
Inks = Sahara Sand, Daffodil Delight, and Basic Black
Tools = Big Shot, SB Nestabilities labels and Shapeabilities butterfly
Extras = white gel pen, 3D pads, yellow gems, and grey ribbon from my stash 

I've seen this colour combo used by others crafters, but never felt brave enough to try it myself until now, and I really love the result. I hope you like it too.

We're all off to Gloucester tomorrow to see the Ship regatta, so no crafting for me ( nor the Grand Prix, but thankfully I've got Sky Plus! Phew! ) but I hope to be back in a day or so.

Thanks for dropping by
