Mojo Monday ~ Happy Birthday

Good Morning Friends!

Today's mojo creation needed to be a 20 minute creation... and so it is.. :D

I'm really loving the layout and imagine I'll be playing with this one again for sure! From making the baby card yesterday I still had some vintage floral designer paper left out on my desk. So this card was also, primarily made from scraps! :D Love that!!

I used the fun flowers die from sizzix to cut the cool flowers, then I crumpled em' up, and lightly sponged them with not quite navy ink. I put the whole blend of flowers, there's 5 layers there, and stuck them with a push pin using my mat pack. Then I was easily able to push my rhinestone brad through.

So how about some measurements
Base layer: 11 x 4 1/4", scored and folded in half at 5 1/2", wild wasabi
Layer 2: 5 3/8 x 4 1/8" very vanilla
Layer 3: Five 1" circle punches... note I laid layer 4 down on my grid paper, and place the 1 inch circles by using the grid. :D
Layer 4: 5 x 3 1/2", wasabi
Layer 5: 4 7/8" x 3 3/8", spring vintage dsp
The remaining 5 layers are from the fun flowers die from sizzix..

To make the gorgeous bow without tails, I used Lee Conrey's amazing bow maker. (of course). :D

That's it for now, I'm off to school with my daughter.

Have a wonderful week!
