...Bright Mojo #67

This is my submission for Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday #67. This card was quite a bit brighter than I normally made, but I loved it none the less! I started with an Old Olive Cardstock base, then matted the additional layers with a combination of More Mustard Cardstock and Tangerine Tango Cardstock. The patterned papers that I used were from the Haiku Designer Series Paper pack, and the bottom layer was pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. A piece of 5/8" Tangerine Tango Striped Grosgrain Ribbon was added around the green paper panel, and the Whisper White Cardstock focal panel was pierced using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer also. The butterfly from "Garden Whimsy" was stamped in VersaMark Ink and Tangerine Tango Classic Ink, then embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. It was then cut out with CutterBee Scissors, and attached to the focal panel with Dimensionals. The sentiment was from the set "Best Yet", and was stamped in Old Olive Craft Ink before being embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. I punched out the words using the Large Oval Punch, then punched a scrap piece of Tangerine Tango Cardstock with the same to create the sentiment panel. The flower and circles were created using the Boho Blossoms Punch (green flower), the 1/2" Circle Punch (green circle), the 1/4" Circle Punch (orange circle), and a 3/8" Circle Punch (yellow circle-non-SU). Silver Brads were placed in the center of each to complete the card.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you all again tomorrow! Until then...

Love this Mercy. That Haiku paper on the background really sets off this card. Love all the circle punches and bling. Great job as usual.
