Mojo Celebrations

I hope you are enjoying the matchbox tutorial. I have stayed away so that those of you who were interested would have a chance to see it. If you are still interested, you can check it out here. For today's card, I used the Mojo Monday sketch. I love it! Yesterday I needed to head to Staples to get some ink cartridges for my printer and Hobby Lobby is on the way so of course I needed to make a stop. I came home with some fun goodies, including this yummy paper from My Mind's Eye. I also picked up a few copic markers so that I could finally color this darling Hydrangea image from Lockhart Stamp Co. that I picked up at Ellen Hutson's store. I went to color it the other day and had really horrible purple choices, so I needed to fix that! LOL!

The focal image was stamped with Palette Noir ink and then colored with copic and prismacolor markers. I added a bit of Lavender glitter to give it some shine and dimension. I created the label with my Nestabilities Label 1 dies. I added some machine stitching, sponging, ribbon, buttons and ribbon! Of course I *had* to add the lace border using the Doily Lace Edge Punch from Martha Stewart.
Thanks, Julee, for anther fantastic sketch! It is one of my favorite challenges of the week! In fact, this is the only challenge I have done this week and we are already half way through! Let's see if I can get my act together and get some more done!


I got all of my cards packaged up that I will be giving to a friend in my neighborhood. The stash included nearly 20 cards. Some of them were hard to add to the stash because they are some of my recent favorites. She will be getting most everything that I have posted since this post. So...that means that all of my cards from this post on, will be going in another stash for a lucky recipient. Today's card is for my friend's birthday on March 2nd. She loves purple, so I hope she will like it! Thanks for fluttering by!

LOVE IT! The colors are so beautiful.. My favorite part of the layout is that you staggered the buttons and didn't put them in a straight line.. Perfect as always... Love your cards...
Hugs
