Clean & Simple... has anyone seen my Mojo?

I'm sure I'm not the only person guilty of downloading free digis without being too discriminating, just because they are there:). This one is however a freebie I'm delighted to have. It comes from NinaMay Designs who have a challenge to make a clean and simple card with it. I gave the digi really minimal colouring with Copics, matted it, added some Cuttlebugged cardstock the colour of the butterfly, a little ribbon and an Elusive Images sentiment stamp. Hooray at least I've managed to complete something today... I'm entering it for the Thank You card theme at I Love Digi Challenge.

I'm really struggling to get creative at the moment, last night everything I started seemed to go wrong so I had a play with some papers... Craft Stamper magazine has an article about Distress Ink backgrounds so I had a play with them but wasn't pleased with the results.
So I got out Glimmer Mists and Cosmic Shimmers and sprayed some A4 cardstock. I'm still not feeling inspired but now I have very inky fingers:)

  4. Hugs! I know how frustrating it can be when nothing feels right and mojo is doing its rounds someplace else! I love the card though so you must have SOME shreds of mojo still stashed away! :)
    Thanks for your congratulations and good words! You are such a kind and wonderful person!
    You better fight well to get that elusive mojo back where it belongs!

  5. What a delightful card! so bright and sunny!
    Take a break and relax, your mojo will find ya!

  6. Love this simple pretty image. Lovely color palet, too. Doesn't look to me like your mojo is missing, this card is fabulous.

  7. I finally went thru the enormous amount of digis I had downloaded and purged.. my computer breathed a sigh of relief!

    Cute card!

  8. I don't think your mojo is missing - looks like it's right there on this wonderful card! I love the colors and super cute image!

  9. Anne - this is a great card - lovely the colours, and the texture background really makes it pop.

    You were such a great support to me when my mojo went missing for quite a while, I don't think it has really gone - it will come back!!

    Hugs and kisses

    PS: You should have seen my bin the other day when I was trying to make my background for a challenge. UUGH ....

  10. Sorry, can´t see you struggling at all! All beautiful! Love the card! Thanks for joining our challenge at TMITA/PCC! Hugs Nilla

  11. I love inky fingers...LOL! Beautiful CAS card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at TMITA/PCC!

  12. I love that digi too! I have so many I downloaded and did not label- so do not know where they are from! Oh- your backgrounds are great- need the right stamps- AND I bet if you put them through a Cuttlebug and highlighted the embossing, they would look even better! Hugs

  13. Beautiful CAS card and I love your papers! Thanks for playing along with us at TMITA/PCC :)
