Red was asked for!

Made for a friend, for a friend and was heading thousands of miles away. Australia was it's destination, wow, never had one go so far before. The backing card embossed with a Sizxix embossing folder and the top layer, embossed red and white card with tri-boss embossing folder then cut the center out of the red piece, mounted red card using sticky back pads to white piece then added Memorybox Tulip to center. The wee white butterflies are cut from the embossing folder. Finished off with ribbon and Memorybox butterfly. Did you manage to follow that, lol, not sure I did.
Made this back end of year, haven't made a card for three days now, Mr Mojo's gone missing and he's taken my energy with him. Just about manage to walk the dog then cuddle up on the sofa with him afterwards. Hopefully I'll come across him and pin him down soon' and get going again.
