Dreams! Verve MOJO, Color Throwdown, and MORE!

Happy Wednesday!  I had a chance to play in my craft room this afternoon.  I decided to use this week's MOJO Monday Sketch 192 and the colors from Color Throwdown 143.  I am using Verve Blue Skies, Bloom and Grow, Bountiful Backgrounds, and Text Objects stamp sets.  I am also using the Elegant Leaves Die and the Flutterby Die.   

I found the Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe Collection paper pack to have all of the colors for the Color Throwdown challenge.  I really love this book binding print.  It is cute and fun.  For my leaf die cut.  I chose to lay a couple of the bountiful background strips side by side on the acrylic block.  I inked up with Memento Pear ink.  I took the solid leaf image from the Bloom and Grow and kissed the inked background  and stamped onto my cardstock and die cut.  I then inked the solid image up and stamped off and lightly stamped onto the kissed stamped image.  I love this patterned effect.  I decided to use another designer page from the pack to die cut my butterfly.  The little tag was created by stamped the stitched heart from Text Objects set and cutting out and distressing slightly the edges.  

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

    As for your reply today on my card, there has been a big problem with Blogger. It took me forever to comment on your FTTC card and I noticed someone in the comments section said they could not comment on yours or mine. The others were o.k.
