Mojo Monday #195


I am about to catch up on the Mojo Monday cards.:) Hope to be ALL caught up before Sunday night so I can enter into the contest before closing.I don't ever expect to win..but LOVE to see all the entries anyway. VERY inspiring.:)

This is a close up of my card.They always look nicer in person.:) I made the leaves and flowers from card stock papers I got from Micheal's craft store. I inked the flowers to add some texture to them. I stamped the birthday cake which included the candles and colored them with colored pencils (Prismacolor Verithin) The Happy Birthday stamp and the birthday cake stamps were from stamps I got in the dollar bin at Micheal's too.
I folded the center paper to add dimension to it and now wish I had just left it alone... because It looks unfinished on the edges and I had to glue them down...which really spoiled the effect I was looking for.LOL
I see a few tweaks I need to do to straighten the ribbon etc...I will do that before I use it.:) I must really love these colors too because I had already started this one and before finishing it..did the Pooh card next...then back to this one today.:)
I feel better about catching up anyway...even if it was backwards.:)

Thanks so much for stopping in and leaving such sweet comments for me.I truly appreciate it!!


Hugs,
