A star is born - Mojo Monday 145 + Cute Card Thursday-Reuse, recycle

Good morning mojo came back thanks to this little stunner from Kenny K Designs, how beautiful is she...Shes called Diva and I used distress inks to colour her up, I couldn't resist colouring her eyes violet like Elizabeth Taylor to match these stunning Bobunny papers and how amazing is this sketch from Mojo Monday, I used a ribbon recycled so I could enter the Cute card Thursday challenge I know its from a box from Christmas I cant even remember what box its from to tell the truth, its a gorgeous ribbon though thanks to a sharp pair of scissors and an iron...I cut the centre from one of the glitzy flowers on the paper to add to the bow...I hope you like it and have a brilliant day
