MOJO 385 and Sentimental Sundays challenge 246

It's Monday and that means it was time to try my hand at the MOJO monday sketch challenge I also thought it would be fun to try another site that I found called Sentimental Sundays challenge 246. They said to do a Valentine Card so I made this with the love you sentiment to go with that theme.  I wanted to use this colored image and was having a hard time getting the cardstock colors just right but I'm pleased with how it turned out.
                                         Here is the sketch

Here is my Vision  well part of it,  New Phone problems!!  deleted some pictures and they are now gone everywhere, pasted this from the challenge site,  sorry.

Stamp Sets:  Indescribable Gift, Butterfly Basics, Express Yourself
Card Stock:  Strawberry Slush, Whisper White, Smokey Slate, DSP; Back to Black
Inks:  Copics   R00 R20  R222   G21  G24   E35  E37   C1  C3
Memento Black, Stampin' Up Pistachio Pudding, Strawberry Slush
Big Shot and Circle Thinlit Die, Butterflies Thinlit Die  sponge dauber, neutral candy dots,     Stampin' dimensionals
  1. this is a 6 1/2" x 4 3/4" card  so cut your strawbrry slush cardstock 9 1/2" first then turn and make the 6 1/2" cut:  score center at  4 3/4"   
  2. cut your whisper white at 6 3/8" x 4 5/8"  (I wanted a very narrow border if you like a wider border I suggest cutting a quarter inch smaller than the front)
  3. The diagonal piece came from the scraps on the base of the card,  1 5/8" x  6 1/2"  I stamped the 2 ends of this piece with strawberry slush using the honeycomb stamp from the Butterfly Basics stamp set.  positioned is across the card at an angle then cut off the ends that hung over.
  4. The DSP piece is cut  4" x  4 1 /2" centered this over the diagonal piece.
  5. Cut a smokey slate piece 6 1/2" x 2" added this over the dsp hugging the left side.
  6. The copic colored flowers are from the Indescribable Gift stamp set cut it out with the circle thinlit die. Sponged around the edge with black and popped up with dimensionals. (copic colored I don't have my blendabilities yet  :(
  7. Stamp  the butterfly from Butterfly Basics stamp set.with Pistachio Pudding then cut with the smallest butterfly in the butterflies thinlit die ( the stamp set and the thinlit die is offered as a bundle in the Occasions Catalog and saves you $$ like that).  Add the butterfly with stampin' dimensionals placed two layers under the wing to make it stand out more. Lastly I added the candy dots to the center of the butterfly.
  8. added  Love you sentiment with strawberry slush.
  9. Now that is the card : my vision and how I made it.  I will also be adding this to the MOJO and Sentimental Sunday challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and looking at my vision, why don't you give a challenge site a try.
