Mojo Monday Birthday

Hello! I just wanted to share my card with you all today:
Not sure if I like how it turned out. I just couldn't decide where I wanted the sentiment to go.
I did a little bit of shopping this morning and found a canvas covered chipboard album, a package of eight 2x2" canvas some distress crackle paint and some pretty green Washi tape.
I couldn't wait to use the tape and one of the square canvases on a card. So I chose to use the Square Mojo Monday Sketch #295. It was perfect for the small square canvas. .

I inked the canvas with Mowed Lawn distress ink then used White Picket Fence distress stain on the edges. I used a pretty crochet flower in the middle of the square with a big brad (I covered the first brad with the clear distress crackle paint but decided not to wait for it to dry) in the center. I stamped and hand cut the two leaves.
 I used a strip of the green washi tape and wrapped a band around the bottom strip of blue paper that I embossed. For the banner I wrapped the one end with green and white baker's twine, added a brad through the center of the small orange flower and tied a small piece of the baker's twine around the back of the brad before adhering it to the banner.
The sweet little wood bird was painted with China Blue and Vintage Photo distress stain. I really like how the stain  covers the wood. This was my first time using wood pieces and I have to say it turned out to be really easy.
 Here is a peek at the inside of the card. Just cut a piece of white cardstock a bit smaller than the card, covered the bottom with a strip of the washi tape and rounded the four corners.
 I had fun making this card using new products. Can't wait to use more of the small flat canvases as I have so many ideas floating around in my head.



  1. My goodness, you have such a keen eye for design. Every single element is perfectly placed. The wee bird is just too cute and such a popular trend right now! Once again, your card is designed so well in that the elements work so perfectly together to draw all the attention to the gorgeous crocheted flower!

    I think that the sentiment is perfect exactly where it is too!

    You are on one heck of a creative roll!

  2. So adorable! I love the bird in the corner and the pretty crochet flower!


Thanks for leaving me a comment. I really enjoy reading them.
