Mojo Monday 98!

This weeks sketch from Mojo Monday was a bit of a challenge for me. But it's supposed to be, right?

Here is how I put the card together:
  • It started off with a Rich Razzleberry base- it is a full sheet of 8 1/2"x11" folded in half, and then I trimmed an inch off the side.
  • A 5.25" square of Soft Suede Textured came next, with two smaller squares of Rich Razzleberry and Whisper White.
  • I gave the Whisper White some paper piercing detail in the corners.
  • I used my Big Shot and the Scallop Circle die to cut the Razzleberry scallop circle.
  • I was able to cut two smaller circles (from Whisper White and a Soft Suede Thoroughly Modern print) using my Circle Scissors Plus.
  • The sentiment, from Great Friend, was inked up in Rich Razzleberry, stamped onto Whisper White and popped out using the Modern Label punch.
  • The butterflies were created using my Big Shot and the Beautiful Butterflies die. I cut out a small and large one using Rich Razzleberry prints and window sheets. The two were attached to each other with the help of circle rhinestone brads.
  • The flowers are from the Pretties Kit. I simply took a Rich Razzleberry SU marker to change the color and let them dry. Brads were used in the centers.
  • For the bow, I cut a piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock that was the width of the card. Then I was able to wrap the ribbon around that piece, instead of cutting into the card base and having the ribbon exposed on the inside.
