Enjoy the little things

Hi friend!  It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  This one is a simple sketch I based off of a scrappy little card I made a while back.  I'm so excited that Soft Sky is returning to the SU! line-up that I had to pull out my beloved (and much hoarded) soft sky cardstock for this one.


I wanted to use this enjoy the little things sentiment from Let it Be and add a few of my very favorite little things... soft sky, polka dot ribbon, butterflies, stars, rainbows and chevrons.  The sentiment is stamped onto a Rounded Rectangle Die cut and matted on a Rounded Scallop Frame Die cut.  I stamped the smaller flower from Let it Be in soft sky ink, then stamped both sizes of flower on the card base in soft sky for a fun background.  The Icing CutUps border is from TCP and I added a healthy dotting of black liquid pearls on the scallop frame and border die cut.  I finished off with a butterfly punch, a star rhinestone cluster and a bit of ribbon from the Polka Dot Basics Ribbon Collection.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!

Love how you used that flower to crate a soft BG and the black accents (especially that polka dotted ribbon - grin!) are fabulous. Lovely cluster of stars too. You are rockin' it as always! :)

I am right behind you celebrating Soft Sky's return! I've got one pack hoarded and will crack it open! This card just makes me smile as I remember all the small and BIG things, like meeting you all yesterday. Sorry if I seemed a little 'Starstruck." :)
