A Little Weekend Mojo

Hi folks! Just thought I'd share a little birthday card that I made for my niece. The design was inspired by this week's Mojo Monday sketch:

Here's my take on the sketch:

The base of the card is White Daisy cardstock cut at 51/2 x 8 1/2 inches and scored and folded at 4 1/4 inches. I layered that with Canary cardstock from the new Paper Fundamentals Whimsy Assortment. The patterned paper is from the new Brushed Paper Pack. For the ribbon, I layered some of the new Thistle Diagonal Striped Ribbon onto some retired seam binding. I added a sentiment from the Happy Birds stamp set in Black Exclusive Ink. The butterflies, "Happy Birthday" and the interior sentiment are from the Your Own Kind Of Wonderful stamp set and are stamped in Thistle Exclusive Ink. The large butterfly, sentiment flag and the card front are popped up using Close To My Heart's new Thin 3-D Foam Tape. (Love it! It's about 1/16 of an inch think so it gives a bit of dimension without making the card too thick.) The butterflies were fussy cut and adhered to the card with foam tape (the big one) and glue dots. For the smaller butterflies, I added antennae with a thin black marker. (It was too difficult to cut around the tiny antennae on the stamp!) I then added bitty sparkles and clear assorted sparkles for a little bling.
Here are a couple of close-ups:
And here is the sentiment from the inside:
And now for one more view of the card:

Hope you enjoyed this bright little card. Have a great rest of the weekend! (I'm picking up my kids today from camp. They've been gone for two weeks. Can't wait to see them!)
