Another beautiful day here again! We have won weather lotto as of late and I’m loving it! I have noticed that it’s getting darker earlier and the sun isn’t up when I get up anymore but the weather has made up for that! Yesterday was definitely a Monday though, work was a little insane and I couldn’t wait to get home and make something! Today is my Mum’s birthday, so a very Happy Birthday to my wonderful mother! I will share her card a little later in the week. She actually requested a specific card this year!
Today I have my Mojo Monday Sketch challenge card to share with you. This week our sketch is provided by Julee Tilman…
I’m not even going to mention the round or square thing! LOL! I dusted off a set that I have neglected lately, it’s a favorite of mine too! The base of the card is Elegant Eggplant Card Stock and the background is a piece of Whisper White that I stamped with the World Map Background Stamp in Smoky Slate. I finally got the Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Emboss Powder a little while ago so I heat embossed the greeting from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set right on the background. The balloons are from the same set and are stamped in Elegant Eggplant and cut out with my Paper Snips. Two Tangerine Tango flags are behind each one and the balloons are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I think this card would make a nice bright masculine birthday card, I like the way the Smoky Slate tones the Eggplant and Tangerine down a bit. Thank you so much for spending some time with me today to see my Mojo Monday Sketch challenge card. I love reading your comments and I hope that you have a fantastic day! 🙂
