Back in the Swing - Mojo Turns 100 Day 6

We were away on holidays for a little while. Wait let me rephrase that. We took a trip. Travelling with two toddlers is not a holiday, its just a change in location. Anyway since we were away there was no time to play with all my crafty stuff. Now we have been home for a while, and well I need to get some cards made.

My sisters birthday is coming up in about two weeks. She is also a cardmaker (or was, she hasn't done it for a long time). She's the one who got me into the whole mess ;p. So when I make her cards, they better be good ones.

I missed most of the week for the Mojo sketches, but thought I would give this one a try.

I'm finally really proud of a mojo sketch that I completed. I love the card that I ended up with. I've been waiting for just the right occassion to use my awesome American Crafts paper. This seemed perfect. I love the way the card turned out. I like the colour combo that I used. I like the stamps that I selected, and I actually didn't do too bad a job on the stamping or the colouring (my colouring techniques leave a lot to be desired.

Here's the final product.

Stamps: Inkadinkado Birthday Cupcakes
Ink: Colourbox Black, Martha Stewart Markers: Cornflower Blue, Pomegranate, Peony
Paper: The Paper Co: White & Pink Cardstock; American Crafts Everyday G'Day; Bazzil Basics Mudpie
Ribbon: Offrey Brown
Glitter: Martha Stewart
