MOJO MONDAY CHALLENGE CARD

Hi all! Well, as promised, I am back to post my card for the day. Today's is for Julee's Mojo Monday challenge. I thought this one was going to be easy, but for some reason I really had a tough time with it. I was not thrilled with the end result, but here it is. I used a lot of SAB rub-ons which I love and the stamp set I used was Merci, an SAB freebie. Gosh, I hope everyone got what they wanted since SAB is over for the year *sniff* I love SAB!!! The base of the card is Whisper White card stock and the other pieces are Old Olive Designer Prints series and Mellow Moss card stock. I double stamped the butterfly to give a 3d effect and used the dp for this as well. I did add a couple of vintage brads and used my ticket corner punch on the edges. This is a very simple card without layers or anything so if you have any questions just ask. I am now off to run a bunch of errands and I hopefully will get to stamp some more tonight! Have a great day!

What a great card, Alex! I have yet to use my rub-ons. I have never used one before and a bit intimidated by them ;0) Guess I should pull them out and play with them. :0)
