500!!!!! Farewell and Thank You!!!!!

Hello everyone: Today is a sad day for the challenge blog community because the always fabulous and fun MOJO MONDAY challenge is saying goodbye.
I've only started blogging a little over two years now but this challenge has been around for an outstanding 9+ years with an amazing 500 sketches created by the incredibly talented Julee Tilman, please hop over to the challenge to read her heartfelt reasons for saying goodbye and enjoy one last time, the amazing creations of the Design Team members, thank you all for all the inspiration.
So here is my card, hope you go and play along just one more time.

I love Sketch challenges and Mojo Monday had some of the best around, this sketches helped me so much to learn how to layer pattern papers, colored images, etc. looking at the awesome inspiration of the Design Team every Monday, was amazing and made it easy for me to create a card.
The image on this one is from a Power Poppy stamp set called Sunny Harvest, I stamped it onto a small piece of water color paper with Stazon black ink and colored it with Prismacolor pencils then fussy cut it.
 The sentiment is from Verve Stamps set and it's called Bountiful Harvest, which I won entering the Mojo Monday challenge last year, I stamped it with Spiced Marmalade DI onto a piece of cream color card stock that I die cut with a cross stitch die.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.

The sentiment and the butterflies are from a retired Flourishes set called "Gerbera Daisies", stamped with Spiced Marmalade distress ink.

Here is Mojo Monday sketch #500
Thank you Julee for sharing your creativity and your wonderful sketches with us all this years, I want to wish you all the best, enjoy your sweet little boys, which are the most perfect reason to bid us farewell.

Thank you all for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my posts, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express. Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

Maria, your card is wonderful! I especially like the inside of the card. Like you, I am saddened by the ending of the MojoMonday blog. I've only been following it for a few months, but have loved the inspiration of the sketches and all the other cards.
