Had a busy few days and had to miss my stampin’ fun yesterday, but I wasn’t going to let that happen again! This is my card for this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. I know it’s Wednesday, but I just won’t miss a fun challenge!

This is such a simple sketch, yet I have to admit, it took me a couple of “tries” before I was satisfied enough to declare it a winner!

I think those of you who visit my blog often know that I love to create cards with patterned paper. Here’s another card where the patterned paper is doing triple duty. This is Stampin’ Up!’s Patio Party Designer Series Paper, along with a smidgen from Birds of a Feather.  The patterns are all crisp and clean.

I took a little “artistic license” with the butterfly…the lines in the Baja Breeze butterfly are actually part of a flower in the DSP. That little “punch moment” was fun!

I really had to hold myself back from adding some pearls. This time, the butterfly is just fine without them.

I kept the sentiment simple, just because I wanted to showcase the paper.
