Hello Sunshine Mojo Monday 349

Hi friends!  I'm a little late with my Mojo Monday sample this week, but better late than never, right? We spent the weekend celebrating the boys' birthday with a fun pizza party at our house.  Kellan told me the day before his birthday that he would still want me to hold him when he was four, and five, and maybe six, but after that maybe not.  LOL  Good to be prepared.

Anyhow, on with the card. I got some new Authentique papers I wanted to try out, and I thought the airplane design would pair perfectly with the new Rise Above set.  So I pulled it out and embossed the distressed sun image on so saffron in gold, adding a sentiment to the center.  Next I cut it out with the coordinating  Partly Cloudy Die Set and popped up onto my layered card.

The long you are my sunshine stamp is embossed in gold on vellum then stapled over my designer paper.  A soft sky background embossed with stitched clouds finishes the look off.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you're having a fabulous day... beware the Ides of March! ;)

  8. Hi Julee

    Ha - your card is BRILLIANT - there is so much I like about it. Firstly the gold embossing - I need to do this more on my own cards. Not like I don't have a ton of embossing powders (picked up at craft sales etc) and then there's the airplanes (so suggestive of sky) and then the clouds embossing. Subtle - amazing.

    Julee - I hope you have a FABULOUS creative weekend.


  9. Thanks for sharing your fantastic card. I loVe your embossing..
