My September mystery item card. 

I needed to have a project using an item that was sent to me. This month it was a pink and white stripped brad. My first thought was flowers. I got out my Bloom cartridge and started going through it and saw the cage. My only dilemma on this was do a bird or a butterfly. I'm thinking I should have done the bird, but my butterfly turned out ok. Actually I decided on the cage after I saw the Sweet Stop Blog sketch.  I used Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Melon Mambo.  The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.
I was going to enter this card in the Sweet Stop challenge and the Verve get your Diva on - Monochromatic. Well, being a procrastinator and someone that doesn't always read the fine print, I couldn't enter either challenge. The Sweet Stop challenge had a twist, "Star". Oops, no stars here. Missed the Verve too, couldn't find the place to enter it. I'm now ready for the next Verve challenge tho and I need to start reading and writing all the instructions so I don't get my challenges mixed up.
Now I must quit procrastinating and get to work on some challenges.
Thanks for stopping by and take care
