Blue Birthday

Brand new year, brand new month. And how's it going so far? Creatively speaking, not good. I'm in a rut, my mojo is still AWOL and I simply cannot get my crafty groove on. It took me forever to make this simple, and I mean mind numbingly simple, birthday card. I'm hoping this will scare my mojo back into action... maybe...perhaps....oh please come back!

The background paper is from Papermania's Liquorice Sherbert. I added a scalloped border in turquoise and some twine for a pop of colour. Although this  card is for a man, I decided to add some a few tiny blue bling.   

The greeting is from Clearly Besotted's It's Your Birthday, stamped with Versacolor Turquoise and layered on grey CS cut with SB Scalloped Rectangle.  The party hat is also from the same stamp set, stamped with Memento London Fog and Versacolor Turquoise.

Taking my card to these linky parties. Join me?

  1. You'd mojo looks like it is working to me and leaning to CAS!! I like the mix of patterns and the little popped up hat. My mojo has gone walkies too but I hope it returns as the weather is stormy here and not much to do except craft x

  3. Love this creation sweetie. Sometimes I take ages over the simplest of cards and then a more involved card I manage to put together quite quickly.

  18. Feeling no mojo IS exhausting - it downright stinks! I always find a bit of a drag right after Christmas - not sure if it's the letdown after the holidays, or what, but every year the first cards are like pulling teeth. Which is why I'm making it around commenting instead of making stuff...
    For all that you struggled making it, I think this card turned out great - I love the scalloped edge & that awesome stitching!
