Party Time Mojo

Can you believe it's already Friday? This week has zoomed by!!! Today there's another Mojo Turns 100 sketch over on the mojo blog and this one's another sketch by Teresa.



I hadn't had a chance to use my Party Time set yet, and I've been dying to try these balloons as Chinese lanterns so that was my starting point for the card. Yesterday my order from Ellen Hutson for the new Spica glitter pens came and boy, oh, boy do I love the Black Soot pen! Eeek! The lanterns just shimmer.

I just love the elegance of black & white (cream) cards for birthdays, so I pulled out my La Creme mat stack by DCWV and cut some flocked circles with nesties. Since my balloons were striped I chose to use this gorgeous black & white striped ribbon from SU! I had planned to stamp the sentiment in the corner of my rectangle, but the bow was so huge, I had to add another circle panel for the sentiment to the card. I finished with some rounded corners, piercing details, rhinestones on the scallops and sponging around all the cream panels.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a great weekend. The girls will be posting more mojo sketches this weekend, too - so if you haven't had a chance to play yet, you won't miss out! :)
