mojo monday . . . .

is not a challenge I participate in very often.  I needed some inspiration for a birthday card for a friend's birthday next week, so I decided to use their sketch:



And, at the same time, I was able to use more of my patterned paper stash for this card:


The 8 x 8 Secret Garden pad has lots of pretty feminine colors and patterns.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts as are the paper flowers.  The beaded brad has been around for a long time, don't know what company it's from.

Hope you are having a LONG weekend of fun!

Love the way you mixed those patterns. That's one of my favorite
paper packs. The stamping on the patterned paper looks great.
