Just Because



Happy Hump Day Peeps!!! Hope you all are having a great week so far and are looking forward to the Holiday Weekend!!!

Today's card is made with The Mojo Monday Sketch. This is a new one, for me, I have always been a little nervous about participating in a sketch challenge that has such a large following, don't really know why? I have borrowed a few Verve Stamp Sets from my friend Lois, I have one, but she has alot more and I love this large butterfly. Now you know if you follow this blog, I am a STAMPIN' UP girl, through and through, but I occasionally get wonder lust and check out a few other companies, and Verve is one I have always admired, the have really cute designs.

Anyway, I started the card with a base of Rich Razzleberry, (have I told you how much I LOVE the new in-colors) I followed the base with a piece of DS paper from the Razzleberry Lemonade pack. The next layer begins with crushed curry and more DS paper. I created the "faux ribbon" with strips of crushed curry and rich razzleberry cardstock. The butterflies are stamped twice in rich razzleberry and crushed curry ink and cut out and layered. I added some sticky pearls to the center and mounted them to the main panel with a dimensional.

The sentiment is from the same set and is stamped onto white with rich razzleberry and punched out with my large oval punch and layered onto a punched scallop oval. It is mounted with dimensionals. I added three sticky pearls to the right side and it is done. I have to say I LOVE this card, and i don't say that very much about my cards, I just love the butterflies and the colors! Hope you like it too!

Well, that is it for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
