Mojo Monday on Tuesday

Happy St. Paddy's Day, everyone! I was so wrapped up in making my Mojo Monday card, that I don't have a St. Paddy's card to share. I'll try and post something later. First, let's talk about Mojo Monday... This week is Mojo Monday 78, and the card I made is actually inspired by my blog background theme, with the color scheme and bird in a pear tree! I got to use new Texturz backgrounds that finally came in my Stampin'Up! package last week (it had been backordered...apparently very poplar!) - they're the Distressed and Daisies embossing plates from the Texturz Plate Kit #4.
What do you think? I love how the distressed plate makes the chocolate chip paper look like a wood background. The daisies on the cameo coral paper don't show up as nicely in the picture as they do in person, but I can tell you that it is a cute design. In general, I love using the texturz plates because I really think that the embossing adds a lot of interest to the paper and to the overall project. Here's the recipe:
*Cheep Talk and Oval All (sneak peek from the upcoming Ocassions catalog!)stamp sets
*Wide oval punch used to round off the bottom of the Whisper White cardstock, large oval, scallop oval punch (another sneak peek), trio flower, 1/4" circle punch
*Texturz plates - Distressed and Daisies plates
*Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Whisper White and Confetti cardstock, Delicate Dots DSP
*Chocolate Chip, Cameo Coral, So Saffron Classic Stampin'Up! Ink Pads
*So Saffron grosgrain ribbon

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting today :)

Last, but certainly not least - I also wanted to wish my MOM a Happy Birthday! She's got a birthday on St Paddy's Day!
