Autumn Birthday

Hi friends!  Welcome to another Monday!  I had a great, busy, fun, packed, exhausting weekend!  Aren't they all?  LOL  Anyhow, since it's the start of the new week, that means there's a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  I had a lot of fun with this one, I hope you do too!


I seriously can't stop making fall cards, so I reached again for that Thankful pad of papers from Authentique. The leaves are from the Harvest Blessings set and were actually leftovers that didn't make it onto my Viva la Verve! card on Friday.  I added them to a piece of cream cardstock embossed with the Barks & Bricks M-Bossabilities folder, then sponged on a bit of distress ink.  The double bow on the side used ribbon from the Polka Dot Ribbon Collection and the sentiment is from Wordy Birds   For my border strip, I used the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set and finished off with some super sparkly smoked topaz Czech rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty.

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