Birthday Vase

Hi friends!  It was a super fast weekend and already time for another round of Mojo Monday.  This week, we've got a CAS sketch that can be dressed up or down to fit your mood.


I've been loving this Thankful paper pad I've had out on my desk, so I reached for it again, in combination with Abundant Blessings  an old fall favorite.  The vase is paper pieced onto crumb cake cardstock, then I just added soft sky and black in for accents.  The soft sky piece is lightly stamped with some of the foliage from the set and I distressed the edges of everything with Frayed Burlap ink.  The sentiment is from Birthday Phrases and I just masked off each word to rearrange them to fit my banner strip.  A button and three little aqua rhinestones finish things off.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a fantastic start to your week!

If you haven't had a chance to hop along with the Diva Inspirations Hop, there's still time to get your comments in!  And the September Diva Dare kicked off on Friday, so be sure to check that out, too!
