Hi lovely friends, followers and crafters - it's been a while since I posted on my blog -  Mojo has been missing big time.   When I saw this Heartfelt Creations stamp,"Dream in Beauty" It gave me the inspiration to get my inks out again! 

I used Distress Inks for all the colouring.  For the background I swished 
ink pads with wet-wipes, then swished the inky wipes onto the card!

I stamped a second Butterfly, fussy-cut it and adhered onto the base image.
(the "believe" wording is from SU).

I would like to enter my card in the following Challenges:-

Eureka Stamps -  challenge #196 - "Things With Wings"

Addicted To Stamps and More - challenge 197 - "Make Your Mark"

Stamping Sensations - June Challenge -  "Feature a Creature"

Crafting With Dragonflies - challenge # 59 - "Dragonflies or Butterflies"

Happy Crafting, and love to all ~

Beautiful card Sylvia, love the colours and how impressive does that background look, I love it! I know what you mean about 'missing mojo' I seem to have too much of everything else to do these days but I am trying to keep making cards as I need them (still a struggle!)

Hope you're keeping well, non stop here, Benjamin is sitting his A-levels over the next couple of weeks, so lots of revision going on and trying to keep him stress free too!

Very beautiful, the background is perfect with the gorgeous image. I hope your creative mojo will stick around for you, I know what it's like when it disappears. I think mine leaves at times when my energy has been used up on other activities or I need to try something new. Take care, Shirleyxx
