Where has my mojo taken me today ???

Wonderful Sunday to all you! 
It is time again to play along with this fortnights challenge at Gingerloft Challenges and our theme this week is ...

Punches & Die Cuts!
The winner drawn by random org will win 3 Gingerloft Images of their choice & the top 3 will win a spot on the GDT for our next challenge. 

This week my mojo took me on the path of the Butterfly.
I have used Gingerloft Sentiment - and BONUS I have heard along the grape vine that Tami is going to add this to the site today as a FREEBIE!  
Unusual for me, but this week I have even gone GREEN! well done MOJO!

Now for the low down on this creation - the flourish in the top right is a die cut and the dragonfly is a brad from my stash that I have been hording since forever.  The flowers are all die cuts that I have distressed the edges on and made into blooms.  I added a touch of ribbon in the top left with a to die for bling-ed up button that is also from my hording stash, and there is a smidgen of lace along the bottom.  I have used 3 DPs and they all have a hand sewn border.  For the finishing touch I add the heart charm that is dangling from the ribbon bow on the right. 

This little baby is off in the post to my Mother in Law for her mothers day card. She loves green especially turquoise and I really wanted to grab an aqua-ish feel that I think I have pulled off with a hit.  The sentiment is perfect for her at the moment as well as she is going through a stage of rediscovering herself. 

Thank you for stopping bye and I hope you play along with us in this weeks Gingerloft Challenge!
