Mojo Monday 194

Hello, stampers! I'm back on the Mojo Monday resolution. I lost track of weekly stamping time what with moving into the new house, but this week's sketch was just what I needed to inspire me to get my Mojo back. Click on the sketch to go check out to Mojo fun!

What I was really needing this week was a cute but not too girlie card for my niece's birthday. I used the blue circle print from the Lucky Paper Packet - I love the fading in-and-out circles. I built the card on our new Kraft Cardstock, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite CS choices.

I added some of the (Lucky) Alphabet print on the monochromatic backside to lighten up the Outdoor denim color scheme, and crossed that with Outdoor Denim Organdy and some (retired) adorable flower print grosgrain. I love printed grosgrain ribbon!

I stamped my starburst "scallops" and the flower center pieces with stamps from the June Stamp of the Month, Jubilation. It's such a versatile little set - I remade this card with alternate images for Father's Day and my other Niece's graduation...three birds with one stone! On the Father's Day version I did do a paper ruffle instead of the flower though.

Speaking of my Flower embellishment, it's actually 2 of the medium sized Big Blooms folded in half to create more depth. It made a nice shape to adhere over the knots in my ribbon without 3-D foam tape too! this one Starts "Hip Hip Hooray..." on the outside, and "It's your birthday!" on the inside - still loving that new Card Chatter- birthday set!
