On Your 3rd Birthday

Hello fellow crafters. Is it cold where you are? It sure is here. Granted, it was a dry day but as the sun went down, so did the temp. Oh my achy (breaky) bones....  On to more pleasant topics: 1- it's Monday...Mojo day ...Yay!!! And 2 - I did not make a Christmas card .... double Yay!

I made a birthday card for a previously wee baby who, in a couple of weeks will reach the ripe old age of 3! Time flies...I tell ya...leaving us ol' timers in a warp-speed daze....or is it just me...I forget...  And why am I here rambling on...oh yes! My Mojo card. Here it is. Take a look while I fetch my warm slippers, cocoa and a muffler ...

The patterned papers are by Jennifer Ellory "Summertime".

That cute image is called "Meeshelle", Polka Doodles' flutterby rubber stamp. I used Memento Tuxedo Black and  Spectrum Noir pens.  All girls love bling, even at age 3!

I stamped 3 little butterflies from the same stamp set in Memento Bamboo Leaves and  coloured in pink, grey and green.  Then I fussy cut and adhered them to the card with some foam tape. The sentiment is  Wild Rose Studio stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out with Spellbinders Ribbon Banners die. To finish I tied a bow in pink and green twine. 

On the inside, I stamped a birthday greeting from WMS Compact  Sentiments 1, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black.

Inspiration for this card came from various challenges: the sketch is from Mojo Monday #268 and the colours are from The Play Date Café #158 "Rose, Eucalyptus and Slate" . For embellies I went to Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #190 and from the recipe options I've picked twine, gems and dies. the ladies at the Corrosive Challenge  #162 are playing "Flutterby"and for fun I'm playing "Anything Goes" with The Squirrel and The Fox # 31 and Paper Playtime #89.

That's all from me today. Thanks for dropping in and enjoy the rest of your Monday. See you soon!
