Mojo Monday 231

I am so excited to share with you my card for Mojo Monday this week.  I am new to Mojo Monday -- I just started playing along around 3 weeks ago, and I just found out from the Mojo Monday blog that there is a contest that is held every first Monday of the month.  You can check it out here.

There is another reason why I'm so excited about this card.  I wanted to try to make a masculine birthday card, but I wanted to incorporate a butterfly in the card (I just can't resist the Stampin' Up Butterfly punch).  I think the card is still masculine enough (because of the colors that I used), even if I included a butterfly.  What do you think?

This card is based on this Mojo Monday sketch by Julee:

I used these products from Stampin' Up to make my card:
Outlined Occasions stamp set (Wood:  127140; Clear:  127135) - from Sale-a-bration 2012
Basic Black classic ink pad (101179)
Pool Party classic ink pad (122938) to stamp the dots on the ribbon and to ink the edges of the card stock
Whisper White card stock (100730)
Pool Party card stock (122924)
Cherry Cobbler card stock (119685)
Basic Gray card stock (121044)
Basic Black card stock (121045)
Whisper White 5/8" satin ribbon (114616)
Sponge Daubers (102892) to stamp the ribbon -- cool trick, huh? :)
Butterfly punch (119848)
2-1/2" Circle punch (120906)
3/4" Circle punch (119873) to punch black card stock to make the faux scallops
1" Square punch (124094) - this was carried over from the Holidays mini catalog, and is still available for purchase 
Stripes Textured Impressions embossing folder (123128)
Regals Collection brads (119737) - I used the Cherry Cobbler ones
Basic Rhinestones (119246)

All these products can be purchased at my Stampin' Up website.  Click "Shop Now" on the top right corner of my Stampin' Up website to get started.

1.  Faux Scallops -  I made them by punching the Basic Black card stock with the 3/4" circle punch and adhering them around the 2-1/2" inch circle Cherry Cobbler punch cut
2.  Faux Polka Dots - I stamped the Pool Party dots on the Whisper White 5/8" satin ribbon using Sponge Daubers
3.  Fish Tail - I cut the fish tail using the corner of the 1" square punch (you can also use scissors, of course)

Thanks for looking!
