Getting Back Into the Groove

Hi all...I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while, I guess you could say I've been experiencing a creativity block. I've been in my craft room playing but nothing I try to do pans out...I could show you pictures of my attempts at being creative, but that would just be depressing. Anyway, I've finally found my mojo again, thanks to Mojo Monday and Create with Connie and Mary.

Using Mojo Monday's Sketch #147

and Create with Connie and Mary Color Challenge #107

I was able to come up with a beautiful card.

Stamps: For All You Do
Paper: Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Old Olive, So Saffron, Whisper White
Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink (I don't have Pink Pirouette ink...Yet), So Saffron
Punches: 2-3/8" Scallop Circle, 1-3/4" Scallop Circle, Boho Blossoms, Modern Label, 3/16" Small Corner, 1/16" Circle Punch
Accessories: Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Brights (Old Olive) and Subtles (Pretty in Pink) Brads, Basic Pearls, Mini Glue Dots, Paper Snips, SNAIL

I use the Mini Glue Dots to adhere Brads to card stock.
The smallest half scallop on the bottom right of the card is from the smallest flower on the Boho Blossoms punch.
The butterfly was done using the Kissing Technique. I stamped the butterfly with Pretty in Pink and the dots in Real Red and then stamped onto the butterfly with the dots. The Pearls are one of Stampin' Up's! newest product, and they already have adhesive on them, so when you take the Pearl off the backing it comes on be careful not to touch the back of the Pearl. I used tweezers to help with the placement.

Enjoy and have a great day.
