Mojo Monday 486-Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Verve Stamps

Happy Monday!  It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch.  I used the layout to create a fun birthday card.

I started out with a piece of number patterned paper--perfect for a birthday card, right?  I picked three coordinating colors to go with the patterned paper and used those to make the background.  A little twine wrapped around the lime green panel added some texture to the solid papers.  After placing the number panel on the background on an angle, I added the sentiment panel on top.  The "happy birthday" is from Verve's Small Packages stamp set.  I used navy pigment ink to stamp it on a cream pierced square panel.  I placed a blue circle at the right side of the sentiment panel and added a silver star on top, using foam tape for dimension.  A few blue enamel dots arranged around the sentiment and star completed 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:
