The face of neglect

My poor hairy baby! He keeps me company & is constantly by my side EXCEPT for when I get busy at my craft desk. He gets bored & wanders into the living room to lay down with his "wubbie". Every now & then he lets out loud sighs just to let me know he knows that I am not paying attention to him. Of course he also knows that if he is good & stays in his spot he will be left in the house usually until very late at night. Sweet thing! Now on to today's creative endeavor!
This one was inspired by the current sketch at Mojo Monday -
this is my first time playing along with them!
Patterned paper is by My Minds Eye, Kaiser Crafts & Carolees Creations, I used CTMH ink in Lagoon for the wings, not sure where I got the brown ink or the bling, and then brown & turquoise cardstock. I cut the die cuts w/ my Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge. The wonderful butterfly is from the January set at The {Stamps} of Life I stamped the wings lightly on the cardstock & then stamped again using heavier color, fussy cut & then attached just at the base to give some dimension
This card is also for the following challenges:
The Creative Cowgirls where the challange was to use turquoise & black or brown
Do you stack up where the challenge is to use patterned paper
Stamp Fairy Challenge where the challenge is circles
