Sunny and Bright

Hi friends!  I'm a little late with my Mojo Monday card today, but it's still Monday, right?  {grin}  It was a crazy weekend with Valentine's and Mark's birthday and the boys deciding to start waking up each night screaming at 2am and 4am and 5am and ...  I'm sure you get the idea.

Anyhow, needless to say when I sat down to stamp this morning, I needed a little bit of bright and sunny in my life, so I picked a melon mambo and so saffron color combo and the  Lean on Me  set and got to work.

I made my own patterned paper using tone on tone stamping with flowers from the set for the so saffron and melon mambo layers.  The flower stamp is stamped in melon mambo, then I colored with Copics and finished with a little flicking using a Melon Mambo marker.  It's cut with the coordinating Pointed Flowers Die Set and I added some leaves with the Sprightly Sprigs Die Set.  Some distressing on all the edges, a bit of pen detail around the edges, then an embossed background and some enamel dots finish things off.

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

  2. Stunning fun and bright card!! Thank you for the inspiration !!

  3. Adore this, Julee!! The bg papers you created are fabulous and adore the off center layered circle. Belated Happy Birthday wishes to Mark (aka: Mr. Verve) and sorry to hear the boys are getting up. Night frights are quite common at this age I've been told... sometimes tied to what they have been reading or watching or hearing? Do an inventory check (my daughter's came from a book she was reading at school) and make sure to say a prayer for protection over their minds while they sleep when you are putting them down. HUGS to you!
