A Mojo butterfly in Soft Suede and Mustard

I love today's sketch over at Mojo Monday - such a great excuse to cut into my brand new Soft Suede polka dot ribbon!

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card:

Stamp set: Flight of the Butterfly
Cardstock: Soft Suede, More Mustard, Very Vanilla, Cardstock Vellum
Ink: Versamark
DSP: Bella Bleu
Punch: Butterfly
Polka Dot Ribbon: Soft Suede
Narrow Grosgrain Ribbon: Very Vanilla
Other: Gold EP, Gold brads, Gold Elastic Cord

The base of the butterfly wings was punched from More Mustard. I then stamped the spotted butterfly onto Vellum and heat embossed with Gold EP before punching out for the top wings. These were adhered with a rolled glue dot and tied around with Gold Elastic Cord for the antennae. Using the stamp-a-ma-jig I stamped the sentiment around the corner of the square with a Versamarker and heat embossed with Gold EP. (The embossing is better picked up by the light in the top photo). The ribbons were trimmed and secured at the top with a Gold brad and then secured at the bottom with a glue dot behind the ribbon tail. Everything else is matting and layering.

I'm just loving the new colours. More of them to come over the next few days!
