Celebrate

Welcome to another week!  It's time for another Mojo Monday sketch, and this week Maria Gurnsey has stepped up to the sketchpad to inspire us with a fun little sketch.  Head on over to the Mojo blog for the sketch and to see the fabulous samples by the Mojo designers.

Today's my Dad's birthday (yep, he's a Valentine's baby - and my hubby Mark's birthday is tomorrow!).  So for dad's card I went for a clean and simple masculine look.  He's red/green color blind, so I try to stick to colors I know he can see well, and these fun papers from BoBunny seemed like the perfect fit.  I paper pieced the balloons from Birthday Bash, then added the celebrate sentiment from the same set and colored with Copic markers.  A little grosgrain ribbon, a star brad and some metal stickers finish off the look.

I've been suffering from frequent migraines again recently, so I've been a little quiet on the blogging front.  I have a few cards made and photographed, though, so hopefully I'll be up to posting a few times this week.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous start to your week!  Oh, and if you'd like a chance at being one of the next Verve Guest Divas, be sure to check out the Get Your Diva On challenge that's starting today over in our forum!

  8. Lovely card and I am sure your Dad will love it; I like the way you have ruffled that ribbon without making it feminine. Sorry you are getting migraines - have you tried to eliminate things from your diet to see if it is food related? Terrible things - I empathise. Love your stamp sets; just used Carpe Cupcake yesterday!
