Mojo Monday


It's time for another Mojo Monday Challenge and you are going to LOVE this sketch! 

Since I'm a paper addict, this was perfect for combining multiple patterns on one card!  I flattened a bottle cap in my Big Shot using only the base platform (no tabs!) and placed the bottle cap (crimped side facing up) between the two cutting plates.  It gives a nice rippled edge when it's flattened and makes it more mailer friendly.  A 1" circle of CS fits perfectly in the center and I added a pearl brad after cutting off the prongs.  I colored the butterflies with Copics (BG70, BG72, BG23, YG11, YG23), die cut them with Verve's All Aflutter die and secured them with glue dots...curling up the wings slightly.  

For more inspiration, head on over to the Mojo Monday blog and check out the fabulous creations by the other mojomakers!
