Embellishment Birthday Mojo!

Hi blog peeps! Happy President's Day {for those of you in the US}! It's been a long time since I've played in a Mojo Monday or Embellishment challenge, so I'm so excited I got to finally both! Primarily because I have the day off {yay!} and got to squeeze in a quick card before getting my day into full swing. Here are the inspiration photos: I have to say that the color palette was sort of a challenge for me with the Blue thrown in, but I had a fun time figuring out my color schemes. The colors I used are SU!'s Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Melon Mambo, and Buckaroo Blue {retired}. I decided I wanted to mix some printed DSP together and was pretty pleased with the outcome! Here's the full card for you: Hope you like it! I actually started with the cupcakes, which was an extra scrap piece from cards I had made a while back, so I created the rest around that. I ended up using all kinds of punches, stamp sets, and goodies, too. Here's the recipe for you:
{Embellishment Birthday Mojo}
All supplies Stampin'Up!
*Stamp Sets: Four Square, Crazy for Cupcakes, Party Hearty
*Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Naturals White, Whisper White, Buckaroo Blue, Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Stack, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP

This is so cute! I need to get off of my lazy bottom and start doing this Mojo challenge. I attempted it once (and I was really happy with the card I made:) but I couldn't figure out how to upload it. I think I know how to do it now, so I have NO excuse:)

I hope all is well in CA! I'm so done with the snow here in MD. We are suppose to get something (1-3" of snow or freezing rain) tonight too. I'm OK as long as the kids have school tomorrow. It's been crazy being snowed in with my two boys. (6 & almost 8) All they seem to do is fight. I'm so looking forward a quiet day tomorrow:)

Have a great day!

Great job Rose. The perfect touch of blue.

Cam said...

Very vibrant Rose! Good enough to eat. I like how you use both ribbons (old olive on top of pretty in pink) to create a unique look. Those punches do go together don't they. Very pretty.
Good luck with your new job tomorrow!!!
