I had a great time playing along with Mojo Monday this week. It was “Tall and Skinny” week which gave me a good reason to try something a little different than the usual A2 cards.
When I saw the Mariposa paper pack at the store, it nearly jumped off the shelves at me saying, “You love butterflies!” I had to buy it.
I built my card on ivory stock, and gave the ivory background some embossed swirl in my Cuttlebug. The gold butterfly was cut from the paper pack and I used foam tape to raise it up above the sentiment.
The red backgrounds were scraps from my stash. The sentiment is from the Happy to be Friends collection from Close To My Heart. I used a “Smoothie” ink pad and Junebug puffy, gold stickers also from Close To My Heart. These elements worked so marvelous with the reds and golds in the paper. I was really happy with the final result!
What a great challenge. Hope you had as much fun looking at all the wonderful cards as I did.
Have a wonderful week!
