As promised happy Mojo Monday :), I have no idea how I was creative after a huge birthday meal and cake but here I am. Mind you I did not stray to far from Julee's sketch.

Wonderful sketch:

My card:

I brought one of those large packs of paper from Costco, the MemorySkor ones that smell funny but have a great carrying case. Anyway, there were some great doublesided pages in the pack but other ones were just bizarre to my eyes. I ended up donating a large portion of the paper but kept some of the tamer ones for my use. This is one of those papers. It worked out well I think.

I stamped the stars from the There She goes- Bit of Stardust clear stamp set, I cut them out and coated them with Versamark and embossed them with Stampin Stuff- Detailed Black. I tried the same with these little plastic stars but well, the tips started to curl a little so I had to be careful :). In the end it turned out.

I used this gorgeous ribbon that I found hidden in my ribbon drawer, from certain angles it looks brown from others black, so for this post it is black.

Supplies: Natural Ivory and black cardstock, Designer Paper-Double sided MemorySkor,Stampendous-Happy Birthday, There She Goes-Bit of Stardust, Spellbinders-Classic Oval Large, Pink Pebbles-Black Candy Dots, misc star stickers, misc ribbon.



  1. I am so taken by your distressed look and the faded color combo. Really draws attention to the dark accented elements. Your oval wordart almost looks beveled.

    Nice, Sis!

    Love ya,

  2. Very nice Nina!! It is so clean and simple looking. I tend to like these type of cards myself when i make mine.

  3. I have to agree with these girls ..wow I love the look. I always forget to say what I used to make my cards ...I love that paper Nina ...I must go hunting for some. Have a great week.
