Mojo Birthday Wishes


I tell ya, I'm so in love with Verve!! The images can stand by themselves, can be used as background, and are super fun to combine with creative decorative papers. I also love sketch challenges, especially when I want a card to come together quickly. I combined this weeks Mojo Monday sketch 170, with a sentiment and paper pieced bird from Verve's Wordy Bird set, along with dp from MME's Fine and Dandy True Blue paper pad. Of course, a card of mine isn't complete without some Spellbinders' dies, so I used the Mega Oval and Mega Scalloped Oval with Labels 14 as it's base. The sun was made with Circle and Inverted Circle Nestabilities dies. Lastly I added some lace, sewing, some Zva Creative Rhinestones, and a Martha Stewart border punch. Oh, and all the edges were ink distressed with Bundled Sage Ranger Distress Ink.

Are you ready for Christmas? I can't wait!! We're counting down the days!!
Happy Stamping my friends!
Tosh
