Frame Flair for Mojo Monday

This is one of those cards that just 'came' to me one morning as I was waking up!  Have you ever had that happen? The Mojo Monday sketch came out on Monday and I didn't really have much time to create something. Then, on Wednesday morning as I was coming out of my dream state an idea for this sketch just came to me!  It was all I could think about all morning but I didn't have a chance to put my idea to cardstock and stamps until this afternoon. (Barely getting it posted in time!)

My actual card is pretty close to what I had 'created' in my dream state.

Here is the Mojo Monday sketch:

I love the idea of the different pattern circles.   I had the perfect circle frames I wanted to try out on my card - Frame Flair (D1546)

I stamped the frames in Outdoor Denim and Twilight ink.  This stamp perfectly coordinates with the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge - <circle 4>.  I cut the inner circles at 1 3/4" on Chantilly paper using two different patterns.    My card has faux stitching on the Twilight cardstock base. I used my ruler and paper piercer to evenly poke my 'stitching' holes.  Next I used an Outdoor Denim marker to create my running stitch.

I used Buttercup and Twilight ink on my butterflies from Flutter Paper Shapes (Z1463).  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Joyful Birthday (B1419) set.  It's one of my FAVORITE sets from the Spring Summer Idea Book!   I finished the card with Colonial White Rosette Ribbon (Z1800) and Pearl Opaques Adhesive Gems (Z1336).

Don't you just love it when you dream something creative?!  I wish that would happen more often!
