Smile

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for my favorite Monday of the month.... Round or Square week over at Mojo Monday!  I picked the round option this time and got right to work.


I started with the sentiment strip, embossing the You Make Me Smile Plain Jane in black, then embossing again in Gumball Green and cutting out the banner to pop up over it.  The butterfly from So Fluttery is embossed in black onto vellum and cut out with the Flutterby Die.  I added some Zva Creative flourishes, then accented the sentiment and butterfly with some rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.  The banner is cut with the Banner Bundle Die Set and the little circle border is from the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set.

I'm also wrapping up the Diva posts for our March Diva Dare over on the Verve Blog today.  Here's a little peek at my card.  Head on over there for the full card and check out the PRIZES we have up for grabs!
