Mojo Monday time...Mojo 161, yes I know it is Tuesday but I made the card last night but did not get the picture taken until today. This card was a true challenge for me, the creative juice has to be squeezed out of me, in the end the card looked simple. This is the sketch.

I used Spellbinders Beaded Ovals and Classic Ovals Large to die cut the frame for Happy Birthday, the oval was a little bigger then hoped and I need to us my little sanding block and scissors to trim it a little(which is why it is a little rough) then stamped Happy Birthday. I don’t have any tiny tags that would follow the sketch so I used a little charm. I went crazy at the bead store one day last year and found a good number of cute charms but I have not really used them.

Supplies: Sage and eggplant cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey Cappella pad, Fiskars- Birthday Party, misc ribbon and charm, Spellbinders Beaded Ovals and Classic Ovals.
I attended a great event this past weekend, Stamp’in Island Style hosted by Kim Teasdale and Angela Thomas up in Nanaimo. There were some very talented ladies doing make and takes and sharing card making tidbits. I forgot half of my projects in a bag on one of the tables so I won’t be able to post. I did manage to remember to put one in my bag though so I will post that later. Thank you to the hostesses for such a great a event, I had a fabulous time.
