Mojo 98

My take on this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I decided to flip the sketch on it's side so it would better fit my birthday theme. I'm also giving you a peek at the inside of the card to tie the theme together for you.

I liked this sketch and may try making a Xmas card with it.

Here are the card details:

I triple stamped my Whipper Snapper worm image that is on the front of the card, colored each with prismacolor pencils and gamsol, cut the original out with a nestie, embossed the other two images, cut one and popped it over the original and then cut just the party hat on the other one and popped that over the second image. I added a seed bead to the party hat topper just for fun.

I backed my image on a scallop nestie and added some white dots with my Sakura pen. I added some texture to my Doodlebug DP with my bubbles CB embossing folder. I also used CB embossing folders for the green backing square and the top half of my blue cardstock. I then stamped the 5 and 0 candles that were from a clear acrylic set I own, colored them with my prismacolor pencils, embossed them with clear embossing powder and then cut them out and popped them on dimensionals. I added some ribbon from Michaels and a cute button that was in my stash, to which I tied some red twine. The sentiment was created with SU's Teeny Tiny Words and punched out with the new SU label punch. I doodled around the label and cut one edge to look like a banner.

On the inside, I used a nestie for the sentiment that I created on my computer. I stamped the cute worms from an Inky Antics acrylic stamp set, colored, embossed, cut out and popped them on dimensionals. I just drew in the dirt mound on the bottom and colored it. Finally, I used some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distressing ink around the edges of my sentiment and background paper and finished off with a bit of doodling around the background edges and the sentiment.

This card is for a friend who turns 50 at the end of this month. I know she will get a kick out of it. Hope you do too!
