from the Hanglar Spring Kit (..and a.w.o.l. mojo)

Hi folks!
Anyone seen my mojo moping around anywhere? Have had to knuckle down and catch up on some housework and I'm afraid I must have offended my mojo who had abandoned me!! This card has taken the best part of two days to make. It covers a few of this weeks challenges. the sketch is from Cupcake Craft Challenges. Paper Take weekly is asking us to use 1 circle, 2 ribbons (I have layered 2 on my card) and 3 stamps (the butterflies are two different stamps from the Magnolia Spring kit) The Secret Crafter asked for stitching so I got my sewing kit out and did a bit of stitching on my card, something I haven't done for a long time and will definitely use again. Lastly the colour combo on Colour Create is Lilac and Blue. I really struggled with these colours...am just not a 'lilac' person.
The papers and card are K&Co and DCWV. This is my favourite stamp from the Hanglar Spring kit and I have coloured it with Prisma colour pencils, sansador, paper stumps and glitter. The Magnolia butterflies have been coloured with glitter and I added some wire antennae. The corner punch is from the Anna Griffin collection. I finished the card off with some self adhesive pearls.
Please, if you find my mojo send it straight home....I think we're gonna have to have words!
Ciao for now!

Hi Sweetie, well, if this card is your mojo on holiday then I'll take the one you're using now on a permanent basis!!! Everything is beautiful, gorgeous and wonderfully coloured Hanglar, such pretty papers and embellies. All perfect! You probably need to not do any housework in order for mojo to come back LOL! (that's laugh out loud to you Sandra!) Hugs, Chris xx

Beautiful card, Sandra. My OH is in a punk band. They are called Gusto Mastivo. It's the first time abroad for them. He has been in loads of bands and been around the UK and Europe...lucky for some!! I used to be in a few bands when I lived in London aswell, I play bassguitar and drums, but now with all the kiddies, I have no time. But it was fun!! Now it's all papercrafts for me..lol...have a good week.x

Wow Sandra. This is sensational! I think your mojo is ultra strong at the moment. I'd pay good money to buy you current mojo off you. I love everything about your card - honestly, it is perfect! Thank you for making my colour choice look so incredible. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.

Hi Sandra - I'm giggling - I struggled with these colours too. I love lilac - I love blue but just couldn't seem to get them together.
Having said that - this is gorgeous, fantastic layout, adorable beautifully coloured Hanglar image and such pretty embellishments.
Thanks for your lovely comment and let's face it crafting on my ironing board is infinitely better than ironing on the ironing board!!
