Just another mojo Monday (remix)

Inspired by this great sketch from mojo Monday. I just had to use this little paper flower I had punched out some pages from an old broken book with Stampin' Up!s scallop circle punch, made some cuts and then layered. I chalked the edges for definition and popped a button on.

It has been such a busy week for me as I have been preparing for the craft fayre which I should have publicised before - doh ! But it's at the Ostreme Centre, Mumbles (really pretty place) in Swansea on Saturday 11th of July 10- 4 pm.

If anyone comes along and mentions the blog they might get a little prize ;D

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx

Supplies from Stampin' Up! - Stamps: a bit of birthday cheer and cheer & wishes. Ink: chocolate chip, ruby red and versamark. Card stock: kraft, ruby red, basic black, very vanilla and chocolate chip. Paper: chocolate chip designer series paper. Misc: ruby red button, narrow twill tape, clear embossing powder and old book pages for flower.
