Monday Mojo 172

I am back today with another FAB sketch from Julee over at Monday Mojo! I do love this sketch as it has so many possibilities! Today I picked the CAS approach!

Here is the sketch....

Here is my card....(But keep scrolling because I changed this card and added more pictures!)

So I am running with the whole polka dot background thing! Cristina sooo inspires me with her use of polka dots so that is where I am getting some PD mojo!! I actually used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig here with the PD's to get them just perfectly lined up!

So that is it for today! Hope it is a fantastic Friday!!

EDIT to original post:

Ok so I am back after staring at the first card over and over thinking I missed something!  What do you think about this version?

I added antenna and a little piece of bling! OH and I put a wider ribbon loop on!

I am thinking I like version 2 better!  What do you think?

  19. It's amazing what a difference such little changes can make. I like the first card but the second one just has a little more zing. Awesome!

  20. Super cute! I DO like version 2 better---the antenna and the wider ribbon are small changes but make a big impact I think!!! Fantastic work!

  22. Liked the first one but the second with the added detail is spot on!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Beautiful colors and card! Def seeing that PD mojo!
    I agree that that corner looks more balanced with something in it, though I think I prefer your usual silver rhinestone(s). (Hope that isn't critical?)

  24. Laurie...I am speechless...verything about this just rocks! The elements that you put together and the details...just are so amazing together! And yet it is all so clean and simple. The color combo and the color balance is just AWESOME!

  25. Red and black= happiness! Love them both...extra details on the second are fab!

    ReplyDelete
  26. This is perfect for the Mojo sketch! I was totally stumped by it and decided to 'pass' this week. ;) I love your updated version - the wider ribbon and tiny bling really add a lot to the over all look. Modern and lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow, this is really fabulous Laurie, I love every single detail!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Laurie, you add so much class to CAS cards. I agree #2 is it. Butterflies always need antenna and the black bling dot just makes the whole card.

  29. Totaly jaw-dropper!! Man I love how you took the sketch and really made it sing! You ROCK!

  30. Gorgeous card - it's amazing the subtle differences on the 2nd card make. Think it's the antenna that does it!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love the colors! You rocked this design! Great job! The first one caught my eye, but I agree...the 2nd does look better!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love the card before and after!!! Both versions are fabby - the antennae are so cute!!! Gorgeous!!!

  33. It amazes me how you're able to take the Mojo sketches and still make them CAS! I do like the wider ribbon on the 2nd card as well as the other touches. Fabulous, as always!
