Mending my mojo x

Ok I admit it - my mojo has been awol for the last couple of weeks and I have found it especially frustrating.

I have been finding it difficult to find time to craft and I have been feeling so tired in the evenings which is when I usually play - I guess lack lustre is definitely the phrase that would describe my state of mind.

So I set to off around blogland to try and inspire myself with as many challenges and inspiration sites as possible !

Here is the result

My papers are from the Pink paislee line botanical garden as are my stamps {small doily & butterfly}.
I didn't have a scalloped circle die large enough so I used the edge of a bowl for a template and added a "just the edge" scalloped cardstock strip around the edge.

All edges were distressed with sepia ink to age and pink brilliance ink to give a little sheen, and the pearls were coloured with a promarker to make them the perfect colour.

Now here is the list of super challenge blogs which inspired me to make this card and recover my mojo - thank you to you all ! x
