Mojo Monday Week 111

 It's time for another Mojo Monday sketch challenge.  I've been needing a lot of birthday cards lately and my stash is out so this sketch had birthday written all over it!

I started with a Dark Chocolate (Papertrey) card base and added a layer of Vintage Cream cardstock.  Both of the patterned papers are from Basic Grey's Offbeat collection.  Using my Nestabilities I cut out a Dark Chocolate scalloped square and Vintage Cream square.  On the square I added the sentiment (Papertrey), flourishes (Close To My Heart), and chipboard dragonfly (Basic Grey).  I didn't want the flourishes to be too dark so I stamped off and got the look I wanted.  The strip of cream ribbon (PTI) and two brown brads (Making Memories) were a few finishing touches.  This is one of my favorite color combinations so I really like how the card turned out.  Hope you do too!
