Circular Birthday

Hi friends!  it's Mojo Monday on a Tuesday here at my house this week.  I wanted to play along with Carole's sketch this week, but this is the first time I've had to stamp in I can't remember how long.  I'm needing a few birthday cards in the near future and so that's where I started with this one.


The sketch is Mojo Monday 268 and I decided to pair the wreath from Holiday Greetings with the happy birthday sentiment from Small Celebrations.  I colored the wreath with Copics, highlighted with Frosted Lace stickles and sponged the inside with Pumice Stone ink and hand trimmed.  It's layered on some papers from the SnapLife collection by Simple Stories and I added a fun little flower and some ruffled ribbon and liquid pearls for accent.  The main layer is embossed with the SU! chevron folder and I added a hint of distressing, because I could.  {grin}

Well, I've got lots to do this week, but I wanted to pop in and change up the scenery here on the blog.  Hope you're having a fabulous week!
