Wishing You a Sweet Surprise

I finished my second card for the week last night but it was too late to take pictures so I had to wait till today to post. This is definitely one of my all time favorite cards.
I used this weeks Mojo Mondays sketch # 235:
I thought it was such a cute sketch.
Then when I saw this weeks Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World blog:
Sweet Surprise
I felt the sketch and trigger were made for each other. 
I love the blue gingham ribbon and the embossing in the TT.
The ribbon  reminded me of this hunk of blue gingham ribbon that I have:
I used two scraps of white embossed cardstock that was leftover from a card I had made a week or so ago. The scalloped punched border was made from the striped embossed cardstock and the other I used to mat the scalloped die cut circle. 
I also die cut a plain circle to go on top the the scalloped circle and stamped the Wishing you in black.
I added a light blue background embossed with Swiss Dot embossing folder and layered it altogether.
Next I added the two flowers. At first I had blue brads in the flowers centers and as I started to add the tiny pearls I decided the brads looked out of place and changed them out for large pearls.
I love this little white flower!
The sweet little gemstone butterfly was the finishing touch.
I love this sketch so much that I'm sure I will use it again.
Thanks for visiting and have a sweet day!
