Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 72!

Hello there! I'm back again today with my Mojo Monday sketch entry! I've come to look forward to this Monday challenge to spark my creativity for the week! I love playing with all my new Stampin'Up! goodies, so it was hard to pick what to use today. Since there are so many birthdays to celebrate this month, I have a vested interest in creating a bunch of birthday cards. Here's the card I created with the new Urban Oasis paper. I'm calling this card Baja Birthday cuz I love the baja breeze paper with this layout - to me, it looks very subdued and sophisticated with this color scheme. I think the card can be used for a guy or girl's bday..what do you think?


Here's the recipe:
*Crazy for Cupcakes and Party Hearty Stamp Sets
*Baja Breeze, Kiwi Kiss, Whisper White and Urban Oasis Designer Series Paper
*Texturz polka dot embossing plate background
*Scallop Circle, 3/4" circle and Scallop Edge punches
*Kiwi Kiss Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Linen Thread, Button bouquet
*Stampin'Up! Bigz XL die (for the larger scallop circle in kiwi kiss)

Hope you like it and thanks for looking!
