Sweet Pea Gold Challenge and Mojo132 Sketch Challenge

I incorporated two challenges in one for this card. First, I used a Sweet Pea Stamps image for their current 'All that Glistens is Gold' challenge on Sweet Pea Stampers.  I know I didn't use a lot of 'gold' in my project, but I honestly don't use a lot of gold.  I'm more of a silver kinda gal!    Anyway, the butterfly in the patterned paper is gold along with the flower flourishes in the corners and the connected circle borders on my stamped image.  Hopefully, that's enough for the challenge.

Secondly, I followed the current Mojo Monday sketch. I love following these sketches and I think it's fun that Julee's doing some round or square options now, too.  I like making round cards for the kids, they always seem in awe when they get a round card - something different from the norm.  :)

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
