Mojo Monday 450-Sending Birthday Wishes

Sending Birthday Wishes card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from WPlus9

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  It's the last week of the month, so we're switching things up a bit and going with a tall and skinny layout.

I used the sketch to make a fun birthday card with a bold gender-neutral color scheme.  The card is built on an aqua card base.  I layered on a teal panel edged with a narrow red cardstock strip and a diagonal striped patterned paper scrap that pulls together all of the colors I used on the card.  The panel was wrapped with a strip of red satin ribbon before it was added to the card. 

I topped the card with a stitched fishtail flag panel.  Since the fishtail flag wasn't as long as I wanted, I created  a longer one with a bit of creative die cutting.  The "sending birthday wishes" sentiment from WPlus9's Sending, Hoping, and Wishing set was stamped on the fishtail flag with teal pigment ink.  To get a nice, solid impression, I used my MISTI to double stamp the words.  A pair of balloons from the Whole Lotta' Happy set were added to the top of the panel to finish the design.

Head on over to the Mojo Monday blog for more inspiration from the design team and to add your own take on this week's sketch!  You can also find all of the Mojo Makers at their blogs here:
