Mojolicious Diva Dare


Absolutely LOVE this week's Mojo sketch! So much so, that I think I will make a square card as well!

My starting point was this yummy Fancy Pants Gerber Daisy DP.  Sure wish it hadn't been the last piece and with flowers and Spring come butterflies, right....?!  At least they do in my book and it is a great excuse to pull out this wonderful butterfly die.

I pulled my colours from the DP -- sure wish this hadn't been the last piece on the shelf as I would have stocked up! - and just had to use my lacy nesties again...I know, it's an addiction LOL!  Paired it with long standing Swiss Dots embossing folder addiction and some paper roses from Michael's.  Just realized this card has no stamping on it!  Doesn't happen very often, that's for sure! 

This card also qualifies for this week's Shabby Tea Room challenge to use butterflies (easy peasy for me LOL!) and Verve's current Diva Dare.  Though black isn't really a spring colour, butterflies and flowers sure are, so I think I can sneak it in :)  Will no doubt make a second one as I love my Verve flowers, and with this month's fabulous release of flowers and matching dies, I can't wait to use my new goodies to make another card for this Diva Dare that is perfect for me :)

Wishing you a day filled with sunshine and a few butterflies ane flowers too :)

Those roses are just beautiful and I just love the softness of this card. I must get busy and make a circle card. I really need to get that lacy circle nestie, too.

Beautiful colors and shape design, Marisa! Is that the smallest butterfly the sizzix die cuts out? I need that die. Gorgeous card!

Marisa...this card is absolutely stunning! I love the black accents, they are the perfect addition to highlight all the other wonderful details like the butterfly and those gorgeous roses! This card is a definite winner! (At least in my book...and that's all that counts...{for me} :)
