On my current quest to use up my Urban Garden paper, I had one strip left of this striped pattern and when I glanced at the current Mojo Monday sketch, I realized it would work perfectly. I really like how it turned out, too!
I apologize for the strong shadows, but it was really bright outside when I had opportunity to take a photo. Hot too! Summer is in full force. I used two different patterns from the Urban Gardens pack, paired with Basic Gray and white cardstock. I embossed the white panel with a polka dot folder by Cuttlebug. It echoes the circle patterned paper nicely and adds texture.
My sentiment is from Bloom & Grow by Verve Stamps. I stamped and colored the butterfly from Blue Skies with a Baja Breeze marker to match the patterned paper and then cut it out. I then placed it on the sentiment circle just like in the sketch.
I still have several cards to post in my Urban Garden series. This card is actually one of the last I created, so it's a bit out of order, but I wanted to get it linked up for Mojo Monday #405 while that was still open. Stayed tuned for the rest!
