Rustic Birthday

Hi friends!  Welcome to another month of Mojo Monday!  Since it's the first Mojo Monday sketch of the month that means it's contest week!  Play along for your chance at a set of your choice from Verve!

I've been using my nanny time the past week or two to really zone in on getting some sets designed for our upcoming FIVE year Anni-VERVE-sary in August.   It's going to be a HUGE release, (I've apparently been storing up the inspiration while I've been on maternity leave and the ideas are flowing freely!)  so if you're a fan and craving some new Verve, start saving your pennies now.  {grin}  Anyhow, I stole just a few minutes at the end of my last twin reprieve to make this card with this week's Mojo Monday sketch.  The sketch is designed by Carole Burrage and I just love it!


I pulled out an older set... Wishful Elegance for this rustic birthday card.  Lots of distressing with distress inks, a little whitewashed paint to make my birthday sentiment stand out against the dark background and some hand cut and watercolored flowers finish things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fantastic week and find a little time to play along with this week's Mojo Monday challenge!  Happy July!
