Birthday Mojo

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  This one came from my crazy sleep-deprived brain.  I must admit that I was super excited to try it out, but it was a bit more of a challenge for me than usual.  Could just be that I'd rather be outside playing in the sun than inside stamping!  {grin}  Talk about spring fever!


Laurie W. has been talking about being hooked on coral and grey and stripes and I thought that sounded like a fabulous combination, so that was the inspiration for my card.  I used the Small Celebrations set, stamping the circle frame stamp on a die cut from the Surely Goodness Die Set.  The center of the frame stamp is a 1-3/8" circle, which makes it easy to customize with punches.  I made my own background paper by stamping tone on tone on the coral paper, then used a couple embossing folders and some washi tape for my stripes.  I accented with some seam binding from the Signature Ribbon Collection and a bunch of silver gray pearls and liquid pearls.

Okay, that's all for me today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Be sure to check out the Mojo Monday blog to see what the other design team members did with this sketch!  And head on over to the Verve Stamps blog for the next installment in our April Diva Dare series!
