Mojo Monday - Great Friend

Today's card is for the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge, this was a great layout and something different from what I've done before. Participating in any sketch challenge sure helps to keep you from getting in a card making rut and challenges you to try something different.
The base of this card is Old Olive, then a 4"x5 1/4" panel of Kiwi Kiss and a 3 3/4"x 3 7/8" piece of Kiwi Walk in the Park DSP with a strip of 1 1/2"x 3 7/8" piece of So Saffron designer paper. The Cameo piece measures 3 1/8" square and the center stamped label was stamped and pop dotted, the butterfly from the set was first stamped in So Saffron and then I rolled the edges of the butterfly in Cameo Coral.


Supplies: Great Friend, Walk in the Park DSP, Sizzix Matchbox die, Eyelet border punch, Ribbon, Pearls, Circle Nestabilities, Piercer, Pop dots. Colors: Old Olive, Kiwi Kiss, Cameo Coral, So Saffron, Whisper White.
