Mojo Butterfly Thank you...

Hello again!

I'm having lots of fun playing with my new mini goodies and I actually have time to play today - hooray! I combined this week's Mojo Monday sketch with the colours from the Colour Q challenge and came up with this card:

I created the butterfly by die-cutting some textured Pink Pirouette card with the Beautiful Butterfly die, then I cut the same sized butterfly from clear window plastic and run through the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. I layered this over the pink butterfly then added a smaller butterfly from matching DSP cut with the embosslits butterflies die. I secured it all together with a big brad from the hodgepodge hardware set. Here's a close up of some details:

The frame around the greeting is from the new FABulous Four Frames set and coordinating decorative label punch. I inked up the stamp with Versamark first then with Early Espresso and embossed with clear EP. I coloured in the flowers and leaves with markers, trimmed around the border then mounted on a label punched from Early Espresso card. The sentiment inside the frame is from Occasional Greetings and I added a little banner peeking out from the frame with a coordinating sentiment from Vintage Vogue.

The ribbon is more Crumb Cake seam binding (love this stuff!) and the Crumb Cake piece of card at the top and bottom of the card was stamped with the Music Notes wheel for a bit of added interest.

Thanks for stopping by today!
