Well, this is a first. Although I've checked the Mojo Monday blog for many, many months this is the first time I've actually done a card for their weekly challenge. I tend to like simple cards so the sketch they put on the Mojo blog seemed extra appealing to me this week.
I started out w/some patterned paper which I slightly inked on the corners w/some vintage photo distress ink. I decided to add a strip of brown cardstock w/some pawprints heat embossed along the length of it. Then, I stamped the sentiment "happy birthday" over and over on the punched out circle shape. I used an old Stampin' up stamp for my little bear image and matted it on some more pattern paper. I added a white ribbon and tied the bow separately. For the final touch, thanks to Kristina Werner's inspiration, I added faux stitching along the card w/a white pen.
It was fun!
Thanks for stopping by!
