Parisian Butterfly Mojo

Whew! I just finished my Mojo Monday 88 card, after many iterations of it in my head! I had planned to use one of the butterflies I'd cut using the Beautiful Butterflies die cut from my scraps of DSP, but I just hadn't quite figured out my color scheme and embellishments until now...so this is the card I finally created. Here's a full view:As you can probably tell, my current favorite die has been the Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die. It is just so versatile! I've been cutting out a bunch of butterflies using all kinds of cardstock colors and DSP and they are all so fun! It's just a matter of time before I figure out more projects to use them in. For this project, I dressed up the butterfly a bit using the Pretties kit half pearls. I like the vintage-y feel of this card. It might be hard to see in the picture, but the bottom Whisper White piece of cardstock is embossed with the Large Dots Texturz plates. A fun, but subtle accent. Hope you like the card!
Here's the recipe - all supplies Stampin'Up!:
*Parisian Breeze Designer Series Specialty Paper, Baha Breeze, Whisper White, and Kraft cardstock
*Great Friend and Baroque Motifs stamp sets
*Baja Breeze and Chocolate Chip Classic Stamp pads
*Pennant Bigz XL die cut, Beatiful Butterflies die cut, Texturz plates, and 1 3/4" circle punch
*Chocolate Chip double stitched grosgrain ribbon, filigree flower, rhinestone brad, Pretties kit

Here's a picture of the Mojo Sketch 88 for you to compare. What a great layout, don't you think? I might use it to create some Father's Day cards - I am envisioning some sort of golf or beer type images along with it. But right now, I think I'm gonna have to call it a night and let my creative juices mull it over in my sleep. Thanks for stopping by!

I'll see you tomorrow!
