Where is my Mojo?

I love Mojo Monday sketches.  When ever I see them - and I look at them every week - I think - wow, I should do that.  But when I do them, I'm never entirely happy with what I've made.  This week they have a fabulous sketch and I'm not as happy with my card as I could have been.  I should have used more contrast on the wide ribbon but hey ho, I'll try again another day.   Papers used are Mariposa by DCWV.  Sentiments are Fiskars (Butterfly kisses) and one other (I can't remember the make) and I have used a number of butterfly punches including my large Martha Stewart one and a flower by Recollections.

And while I'm here, I may as well upload this card too.  It's another one I made for a fabulous Mojo Monday sketch last year using some of the same Mariposa papers but didn't enter the challenge.  This, too, is a Fiskar's sentiment.  I love these papers!  But I think I just don't like making rectangular cards.  I'm a bit more square to be honest.
In addition to Mojo Monday,
I am entering my card into the "things with wings" challenge at Crafts and Me
