Lemon Lush Happy Day

Hi friends!  It's already Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  I had a lot of fun with this one and I hope you do, too!

I started with some Lemon Lush papers that called my name on a recent outing to the craft store.  I cut the background pieces to 1.5", 2.5" and 1.25", then sponged them all lightly with Antique Linen distress ink and taped together.  I cut a 2 x 3.5" rectangle from the stripey paper, then sewed directly to the pieced together background.  I embossed the Have a happy day sentiment from Be Blessed in early espresso onto a vellum die cut circle and also stitched this to the panel.  The birthday wishes sentiment is also from Be Blessed and embossed onto a scrap from one of the papers  I already used.  I wrapped some linen thread around the background three times, leaving room for a nesting of thread secured with a glue dot, then layered the birthday wishes banner over it and added a couple paper flowers and some enamel dots.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you have a wonderfully creative week!  I'll leave you with a little reminder that Verve's Anni-VERVE-sary sale is still going on with most of the store marked 20% off!
