Mojo Monday Challenge 186

Opa was curling last night so I made a card for the Mojo Monday challenge.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

 All papers are from the CTMH Sophia Paper Pack.  The sentiment is a rubber stamp from Iinkadinkado and was stamped with CTMH Hollyhock.  Ribbon is from my stash.  I substituted a very narrow white ribbon
for twine at the top of the card.  I'm not really sure I like the twine that people have been using on their cards.
I chose to do the coloured square in a diamond pattern just to give the card a bit more interest.  I added a few pink rhinestones as well.  The flower is a silk flower from my stash.  The punch I used is from Recollections.  Just in case you haven't noticed, I love butterflies and now that spring is here, you'll be seeing more butterflies on the cards I make.  I am very happy with how this card turned out.  When I first saw the sketch, I felt a bit overwhelmed by it.  I haven't finished the inside of the card as yet - still have a few ideas in my head for that.  Once I have finished the inside, I will post a picture of it so stay tuned!

Thanks for stopping by!
