Birthday Blessings and a MOJO!


Happy Friday!  I have been out of school for 1 week today!  Yay!  Of course, that just means summer cleaning time.  I have spent quite a bit of time in my crafty space doing to cleaning and rearranging.   Once the spaced look okay, I just had to mess it up and get inky.  I have a card to share today using Verve stamps and this week Mojo Monday Sketch.  I need a fun teen girl birthday card for someone special.  Cannot say as she may see this post on Facebook.

For my card I am using some Echo Park papers.  I combined Verve's newly released On Occasion stamp set with Bountiful Backgrounds and  Purely Sentimental sets.  I am also using Verve's Cut Above Occasion Frame, Wavy Hearts, and Scalloped Trim Trio die sets.

I did a lot of edge distressing, sewing, and white embossing, along with some inked up edges and layering to create this fun Birthday card.   I finished with a bow using Verve's Spring Fling Ribbon Collection in Sunshine.  I did use some Ranger Antique Linen to ink distress the ribbon a bit.  Love that effect. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
