Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you have sunshine and warmer temps wherever you are!  I had a chance to play in my craftroom this morning.   I am using the Mojo185 sketch.   The first Monday of the month is Mojo contest week.   Up to SEVEN people have a chance to win some Verve!  How cool is that?       

For my card I am using Verve  Thoughtful Accents and Fabulous You stamp sets.  I used one of the images in the Thought Accents set to stamp some cream cardstock and die cut with the  Verve Flutterby die.  I inked the edges and used my CAD to emboss and punch holes around the edges for added butterfly effects.  I layered some of my new Spellbinder's doily dies and border strips to my card!  I finished with some seam binding, gold pearls, corsage pins, and a vintage gold button.


 I am also using the colors from CR84FN Color Challenge.  I used the designer paper from the Prima Madeline paper pad.  The kraft color is used in the sponged edges and the thread used for stitching.  I am also playing along with a few other blog challenges!

RRR:  Dies and Ribbon
Stamp Something:  Sassy Circles
Paper Romance:  Recipe!  I think I got it right
