Mojo Monday

Good morning! My card that I have to share with you today is actually last week's Mojo Monday sketch. I had a sudden burst of inspiration and had to play! I barely squeaked it in for submission on Sunday evening, but saved it for later this week to share with you all.
It's a pretty basic, simple card, but I'm quite pleased with it. I pulled out some really old SU dp. I think it is called Summer Picnic. I can't even remember which catalog it was in... but it was a few of them ago. When I saw this oval on the sketch I immediately thought of my little branch and birdie from Cheep Talk. So cute! The curved sentiments didn't really work with the location, however, so I dipped into my Upsy Daisy set for this birthday sentiment. The only thing on this card not by SU is the ribbon. I didn't have any Pumpkin Pie ribbon and it just absolutely needed to be orange. I practiced tying the bow a bit more and I think there is some definitely improvement! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. what a cheerful card!! That little birdie is so cute :) The birds outside my house are not happy this's snowing!! Ah, I knew winter wasn't over yet. You are encouraging me to go through my old paper. I'm gettting quite the collection and will never use it all. A friend suggested I take the old stuff to school and let the kids use it for writing or crafts...I think I might. It's too pretty to throw away :) Have a great weekend :)
