Check out Julee 's blog.She posts a new sketch every Monday
plus she has a challenge on her Verve Visual's blog.
I love her sketches and challenges, they are so much fun to do.
The challenge is to use these colors on a card.
I didn't have the exact colors, so went with colors that was close,
or at least I think they are,lol.

I wasn't sure I was gonna like this card when I was making it,
but now I am loving it.It looks so much prettier IRL.The paper
I used for this card was from The Glitter Stack by DCWV.
All the little flower dots has sparkles on them and was so surprise
when looking for paper to do this challenge that all the colors were
on the paper.
White cardstock was put thru the CB using the spots&dots folder.
I used my Su slit punch to creat the scallops. MA ribbon,
VV sentiment stamp.And of course my butterfly stamp again.
I am loving this little stamp.

For this card I used MOjo#38 sketch.What a wonderful sketch.
I loved the sketch so much I made 2 cards with it.

Wow, I haven't posted in over a week.I tried several times to make a card
and it seems my Mojo was missing.
I was looking for ideas to get my mojo going and I came across
Beate's "Be Inspired Challenge".I loved the colors in both
of her inspired pieces and it was what I needed to get my mojo back.
I took the colors from the bedding as my Inspiration.
White, blue and brown.Such a wonderful color combo.

I took a piece of blue pattern paper from CBox and used
Beate's Grid Technique. I also used it on a piece of white CS.
Made my scallop border using the slit punch from SU.
VV stamps and Clear Choice butterfly stamp.
Brads from my stash and yummy brown walmart ribbon.
