Reduce, reuse & recycle & Mojo Monday 184

I love the sketch challenges I find every Monday on Mojo Monday & when I saw this week's sketch, I just had to play along.  You might be wondering why the title of this post refers to reducing, reusing and recycling.  Well, on Friday we all got a box of Lindt chocolates from one of our suppliers.  We also got a water bottle with their logo on it.  The box of chocolates had a gorgeous picture of a daffodil and I cut it out and used it on my card.  

First - here is the sketch:

For anyone who regularly visits the Mojo Monday blog, the last Monday of the month they challenge you to make a card shape either round or square just to make things more interesting.
And here is my take on this week's challenge:

Looking at this picture of the card, the daffodil does seem kinda large but it looks much better IRL!  I chose to go with the square card.  The card is 4 3/4 x 4 3/4.  The pink ribbon is from my stash.  I added the yellow ribbon bow (which I made with my bow easy) for a bit of interest.  I love butterflies and couldn't resist adding the pink plastic butterfly I got from my Secret Pal at Paper Craft Planet.  The designer paper is from my stash and I used a Recollections border punch.  The sentiment came from my favourite scrap book store (Pointer's) which I visit at least 3 - 4 times per month on my lunch hour.  I believe Heidi's (the owner of Pointer's) hubby made the stamp as it did not have a manufacturer's name on it.  It came on a sheet of red rubber with other spring and easter stamps.   I cut the stamp out and mounted it on EZ mount and then stamped it using an acrylic block and ink from CTMH.  

Thanks for stopping by!
