Gorjuss Mojo Monday and Cute Card Thursday

I've had to combine a couple of challenges again else I will never get round to all the ones I want to do. I've used Julee's sketch on Mojo Monday and am also entering it in Cute Card Thursday as their challenge this week is Floral Fantasy. (Okay, so my card is more a floral explosion than a fantasy with this in your face paper lol). I forgot I had it, it was my bargain buy from Harrogate last year - very strokeable for sure.

I had to jiggle this card a bit, I had already scored and folded the card when I realised the bottom need to be punched and I wasn't going to start over so I punched the off cut, trimmed a bit off the bottom of the card then stuck off-cut on and disguised the join with the blue mat.

I sort of carried the sketch through to the inside (left off one of the layers) but think it still works.
