Mojo Monday 142- contest week!

Hi there! It is the mojo Monday contest week. The first Monday each month Julee gives away up to 7 Verve sets to the entries judged to be "mojo-est". Below is the sketch for the week and my sample.

I am pretty pleased how this card came out. The butterfly and sentiment are from the newly released Everyday Miracles set from Sweet N Sassy stamps. Isn't it gorgeous! It is available in BOTH digi and clear stamps- pretty neat? I have used the stamp and digi for my card. I colored the butterfly with copics, added stickles for some sparkle and cut it out and raised slightly with foam tape. The paper I used has some great sparkle in it as well and is called blanc sparkle from Paper Temptress. This cardstock is awesome for copics and for digital images. It is available in both text weight which is great for layers and in cardstock 92# which works well for coloring and for the bases. It is one of my favorites and is a must-have in my opionion especially since it is on sale for 25% off in June. There are 6 colors to choose from and my black layers are noir sparkle from the same line. The beautiful roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts in the UK and come in so many colors and sizes. The ones that I used are 10, 15, and 25mm white that I sponged the tips with sky ink and added stickles to. The edges of the patterned paper, image, and sentiment were sponged/distressed with ink before sewed on. I added a tiny black rhinestone between each of the scallops and pearls in the corners. There is a lot going on with this card but I do like it and hope you do too. Now, the flowers would make it difficult to mail so this will be a hand delivered card.
