Mojo With or Without?




Good Tuesday Morning Peeps! We have been having early morning storms roll through for the last couple of days. This morning our power went off and was off for awhile. I left to go on my walk and when I got back it finally was on.

On to today's card, it is made with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge I really am digging these mojo sketches, but you know I love all sketch challenges, it seems I can't make a card without one now!

I decided to use some Verve stamps for this card. I started with the Floral Whimsy Set and stamped the flowers onto crushed curry cardstock with black stazon. I also stamped them onto some whisper white. I cut out the flowers on the crushed curry and added them to the ones on the white with some pop dots. Then I went looking for some matching DS paper and pulled these two pieces from the Razzleberry Lemonade and Tall Tales packs. I layered with crushed curry and basic black. I cut a strip of basic black to go across the bottom and used my Martha Stewart Double scallop punch along the bottom edge. I, of course, pierced the scallops. I added some crushed curry polka dot ribbon and then made a bow to add too. I then went looking for a sentiment to fit the square from the sketch. I found this cute saying..."You're Still the one" in the Verve "Feeling Groovy" stamp set. I stamped it onto some scrap white with black stazon and cut it out to fit the square hardware piece from the SU stylized silver hardware kit. I added silver brads to the piece.

After getting it all together I thought it might still need something else so I added the piercing in the corner of the main panel and then the butterfly. Now my question to you is do you like it with our without the butterfly? I have looked at it both ways and can't decide. Here is the pic with:






So let me know what you think? With or without?

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

I like it with but what if you put some black design on the butterfly to help it stand out more?! I can't believe you even asked for help though...you are such an inspiration to me! I love your stuff!!
