MoJo Monday... Great Friend!

Ahhh, the weekend is just about here! These last 2 days have been a blurr... not much blog surfing for me, but will be catching up this weekend! :)

I did manage to make time to try the MoJo Monday 89 Challenge!! I just received my "GREAT FRIEND" set and picked my DP from Chatter Box. This was my color inspiration... I can't believe I used every stamp in this set. Has to be a first in a long time for me!!

I did the Rockn' Roll Technique on the butterfly, added gold pearls, felt flowers, and the rick-rack was a fun twist to my card! :)

I sure miss doing challenges and need to get back into them. Until we talk again my stamping friends... have a super day, happy stamping and ENJOY!!


SMILES... Michelle :)
