Birthday Mojo

Hi friends! It's a new month of Mojo Monday and that means it's contest week! Play along with this week's sketch for a chance to win a Verve set of your choice. I got a little bit of time to play with Verve's new release a few weeks back and this was my favorite card I made so I turned it into this week's Mojo sketch. It uses a bit of older Verve mixed with some of the newest sets and dies.


Now that I'm constantly attached to two little infants, I don't get much "me" time and one of the things I miss most is heading to the craft stores to check out what's new. So I signed up for the Scarlet Lime Mixed-Media Kit so I could get a little surprise in my mailbox each month. The papers and rub-ons used on this card are both from the She-Art line that was included in the March kit. So I was inspired to do a bit of a mixed-media look to the card with some distressed edges and some White Picket Fence distress stain to grunge things up.

The circle frame stamp is an old favorite from the Thankful Accents set and I stamped the sentiment from Small Celebrations inside the ribbon banner from Super Dad and cut out with the Ribbon Banner Die. Then I cut out the Fringe Flower Plain Jane colored with Copics and popped up over everything. A few embellishments and this fun little card was finished.

Okay, that's all from me.  Hope you have a fantastic start to your week!  Be sure to hop on over to the Mojo Blog to see the inspiration from the design team, then play along for a chance to win!  Oh, and if you missed it on Saturday, be sure to hit the Verve Blog for the Diva Inspirations Hop list!

  6. Very cool mix of vintage and grunge, Julee! Hope you're getting a little sleep these days, too, Mama. And I think I'm going to be needing to place a Verve order soon, from the look of that new ribbon banner die... :)
