Just A Mo....

Aw, my mojo's been missing these last few days... weeks, months!! So what better than using up some of Mo's digi's I coloured some time back. WOYWW visitors would have spotted this little darling stuck to my wall above my usual crafty-mess. Time to use it I think!
First I printed him out twice, coloured him with Promarkers and then 3D-ed him, fixed the whole thing to the card using silicone glue, after first cutting it out using 'Large Deckled Rectangles' Nestabilities.
Once I found the right paper's, (Forever Friends 'Just For Him' for the garden theme and Cosy Christmas' for the red dots) the whole card came together quite easily! The Swirl is by Memory Box and so that I could fix it over the edge, I've sliced some of the front off the card and replaced it with acetate, hoping this also makes the card not square for a challenge I've found over on Cardmadfairy's Digi Days. The white plastic sticky stuff behind the image is really used for sticking onto loose carpets, rugs, mats, to stop them from slipping, that didn't work... so, rather than throw it away, it now has a place in my craft room! I've used it here thinking it might look like a garden trellis. I've also used it on this card to look like kitchen tiles. The The font used is called Flower Child.  The little Ladybird/Ladybug was fixed to a tiny peg, so I prised it off and used a Quickie Glue pen to fix it to the card. I finished off with some red spotty ribbon, three tiny green gems and a bee charm, because one of the challenges I quite liked was 'Busy Bugs'. Inside I used a Martha Stewart Floral Lace border punch. I was hoping this 'paper lace' might do for Mo's latest challenge too.. but as everyone seems to be using lots of 'prober lace' and little girl images...maybe not, 'real' lace just didn't go with the wellie boots!
