Mojo98 Pink Birthday Wishes

I had to make a card for my Mother-in-law to give to her mother and as soon as I saw this week's Mojo Monday Sketch, I knew it would be perfect! I'm a little late playing because my 4yr old hasn't been well and then my computer decided it wasn't going to behave.....but I finally made it! :)

I started with a base of Pink Pirouette and layered with white (pierced) and some Bella Rose DSP. The square panel is more pirouette layered with white and some more Bella Rose DSP. On top of that is another layer of pirouette that has been cut using the Label 3 Nestabilities and pierced around the circle. The circle has been stamped using JustRite's 2" Stamper with Bonus Flower Center and 15 pt Font. My MIL told me what she'd like it to say (and no, Mum is spelt correct.....we don't say MOM over here! :) ) - so I stamped it in black on white twice and then coloured the flowers with Old Olive and Pretty in Pink ink and cut one of them out and popped it up with foam dots in the centre. I finished off with some of this luscious pink satin ribbon and made the bow using my Bow-Easy and then added some Snow Kaisercraft pearls to each corner of the square panel.

Stamps - 2" Wooden Stamper with Flower Center and 15 pt Font (JustRite)

Paper - White, Pink Pirouette, Bella Rose DSP

Ink - Black, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive

Accessories - Label 3 and Circle Nestabilities, blender pen, paper piercer and mat pack, pink satin ribbon, bow easy, Kaisercraft pearls, pop dots.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!! :)

Kathy, this is PERFECT for the Mojo Monday sketch this week! I started out trying this sketch yesterday with Flopsey, and ended up using this week's sketch at 365. You rocked it, girl :)

Hi girlie! this is beautiful. I can't believe you hand placed all those TINY letters -what patience you have -LOL! I was a bit stumped on the sketch until now, I love how you carried the green DP thru the entire panel and placed the ribbon over it. Now I am gonna play!! Hugs,
