MOJO 120 - Birthday Wishes

Hi All,

Second post for today.  The sketch over on the Mojo Monday blog is stellar this week! You can find the post HERE.  Teresa Kline filled in this week and did a FAB job!


Alright, so I forced myself to stop using DSP on a card...it wasn't easy!  I decided to use the colour from this week's colour challenge on SCS: CC252; Bermuda Bay, Certainly Celery, and Handsome Hunter + neutrals.

My card base is Certainly Celery, followed by Whisper White and Bermuda Bay - the last 2 layers were punched with my Ticket Corner Punch.  The Bermuda Bay piece was embossed with the Houndstooth Cuttlebug folder.

For the horizontal panel, the Certainly Celery layer was punched with the Eyelet Edge Punch, and topped with a Whisper White layer.  Next, I printed this Digital Ruffle onto PTI White CS, coloured it in with Copic markers, cut it out, and stuck it onto the white piece.

For the larger panel, I used Certainly Celery, Whisper White, and Bermuda Bay CS, which was stamped with the background stamp from Wishful Elegance in Bermuda Bay ink.  I added tiny rhinestones to that layer as well.  I also stamped the sentiment from the same set in Versamark, and embossed white White EP.
I stuck some Polka Dot Bermuda Bay ribbon to that layer, which was cut into a "V" at the end.  I added 4 flower brads to the bottom right corner of that.

I stamped the flower from the same set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto PTI White CS, coloured it with Copic markers and cut it out with Classic Circle Nesties.  I sponged that layer with Bermuda Bay ink, and matted it onto a Handsome Hunter circle.  I stamped the smaller flower onto PTI White CS, coloured it in with Copics, cut it out, and mounted it onto the larger flower.

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
