Birthday Blessings

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for Mojo Monday #299!  Wow... so many sketches.  We've got a huge shindig planned for next week's Mojo300!  Woohoo.  Anyhow, this week is round or square week and I went for the square version to make a little birthday card.


I've been on a "stamps as backgrounds" kick lately, so there's a lot of tone on tone stamping here.  All of the stamps are from the On Occasion set.  The flowers is stamped randomly in Raspberry Ripple on the same color cardstock.  I used the loopy border strip for a background on the Pear Pizzazz banner (cut with the Banner Bundle Die Set .  The birthday blessing sentiment is stamped in black , then thinly matted on black and layered onto the stamped frame and cut with the coordinating Occasion Frame Die   A little Polka Dot Basics Ribbon and somestickles finishes things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you have a fantastic week!
