Mojo89: Just Because I Like Purple

I needed a little inspiration today so I checked out the Mojo Monday Blog and they had an absolutely fabulous sketch: Mojo89 that I just had to use! The color purple has also been catching my eye lately so I decided I better include a bit on this card.

Quick notes: the finished card size is 5" x 5" (Pretty in Pink card base). I created a background panel for the butterfly by stamping a text background from PTI on a piece of Lavender Moon cardstock in Going Gray Classic ink. For the purple circle accent I first cut it using a circle die and then ran it through my Big Shot with a CuttleBug embossing folder. I accented the piece with a circle of bling from Heidi Swapp and a flower I crocheted - using a button to attach it to the main panel.

The butterfly was stamped in black ink on the main panel and then stamped a second time in pink ink on white cardstock and cut out. I adhered just the butterly body to the main panel and then bent the wings up slightly and added rhinestones.

For the cardbase and the sentiment I used a pretty piece of gray designer paper from SEI. I added some ribbon, paper piercing, brads and black mats to finish.

Hope you enjoyed the card! I'm off to crochet more flowers since my collection is running perilously low! ;)
