Mojo 81

I've been planning this card since Monday so guess it's time to get it done and posted.

This sketch was a bit out of the box for me too, but once I decided what stamps I wanted to use and what size card I needed to make to have them work in the sketch, it all fell together.

Here are the details:

The DP is Basic Grey (Euphoria) blue is American Crafts, pink is Bazzill and green is SU Certainly Celery. The blue paper was embossed with my Cuttlebug Happy Birthday embossing folder. The stamp image is from Mouse House stamps, the birthday stamp from SU Party Hearty and I created the Eat Your Cake sentiment on my computer and then cut it out with a Nestabilities label die. The mouse image was colored with prismacolor pencils and blended with gamsol with the exception of the hat which I colored with SU certainly celery and baja blue using an aqua pen. I added some crystal effects to the cake and the little candles. I cut out and popped the bunny with dimensionals on a white background that I embossed with my Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. The green scallop frame was cut with a Nestabilities and popped with dimensionals. The "B is for birthday" was stamped in SU Purely Pomegranate, cut by hand and then sponged on the edges with pomegranate ink. I added punched circles in white, pink and blue to the center of the "b", punched a daisy with my Fiskar's punch and added a bunny brad to the center of the flower and popped it with a large dimensional. I punched 3 more daisies for the embellishments on the bottom of the card and added some tiny pink buttons to them for centers. The double ribbon came from my stash. Before assembling, I used a corner punch on all 4 corners and added some red brads to my white base.

Thanks again Mojo gals for the inspiration and another challenging sketch! I couldn't think these things up on my own!:))


  1. What a fabulous take on the challenge!! The embossing and the DP work so well with your image and layout!! It's certainly nice to be challenged sometimes - look what you did!!!
