Simple Birthday

Hi friends!  It's Monday again and time for a brand new Mojo Monday sketch.  This week I went with a simple masculine card, making the papers do most of the work.

Each layer is distressed with antique linen and vintage photo and I stamped the banners and the {happy} and birthday sentiments from Wonderful Marvelous in coffee archival ink, then colored the banners with Copic markers.  My star accent is a star cut with the Starry Die, then matted on a large star SU! punch.  I covered a wood veneer pennant with some coordinating paper and layered it underneath as weel, then accented the star with the happy metal embellishment.  Super simple, but perfect for it's intended recipient.  :)  And with the stripes on the paper and banners, I'm adding this to the Sensational Stripes Diva Inspirations challenge.

Head on over to the Mojo Monday blog today to see the rest of the team's take on the sketch, then grab some stamps and play along with us.

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