Ducky Mojo

Hi peeps!  My Mojo Monday card for this week is just a tad bit late.  I actually made the card this weekend, but multiple oopses and a whole lot of re-diamond glazing delayed the picture taking.  As in... oops I put my thumb in the diamond glaze.... oops the cat stepped in the diamond glaze.... oops the fan blew the card off the bookshelf face down and there's diamond glaze on the desk.... oops a pile of papers just fell and landed in the diamond glaze.  Ever have one of those days?  These poor balloons have been through the ringer, I tell ya!

This card is for my big brother who just had a birthday.  I thought he'd get a kick out of Dax the Duck, so I created a little party scene using the new Life of the Party collection from BasicGrey.  Following this week's Mojo 184 sketch, I went for the square option.  I added a die cut border below and adorned the top half of the stage with a Charming Oval Die cut in half lengthwise and embellished with orange frosted flatback pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty.  The balloons are cut from DP using the oval in the Charming Oval Die Set and I stamped the balloon string from Egg-stra Special directly on the middle panel.

Dax from Lucky Ducky is cut out and I tucked a Charming Banner Die under his arm and stamped a sentiment from Big Wish.  I finished off with some layered SU! star punches, Liquid Pearls and umpteen coats of Diamond Glaze sprinkled with glitter on the balloons.  :)
