Challenge deadline: Saturday, July 31.

For my card I started with Fancy Pants By the Shore patterned papers.  I layered pattern sections to follow this week's Mojo Monday Sketch.  I used Verve's newly released Flourished Tag die set  and stamped the circular sentiment from Verve's Faith Medley stamp set.  I  added a loose thread bow and attached with a mini clothespin. I die cut Verve's newly released butterfly die from Verve's Butterfly Dream die set.  I layered pattern paper and vellum.  I topped the butterfly with a few of Verve's Shine Bright Sequin Mix.  I also added a few other of the sequins to the card.
