Well Hello Mojo!

I'm off to Disneyland next week for the Close To My Heart National Convention. One of the highlights for me is participating in a general card swap in which everyone who wants to participate brings along their handmade cards and we swap. I swapped for some beautiful cards last year! Unfortunately, this year I haven't had a lot of time to make my cards, and I was having a devil of a time coming up with a design. Enter this week's Mojo Monday challenge! Woo HOO! Swaps are done!

Here's the sketch:
And here's my take on it:


This card actually came together pretty quickly, which is good since I ended up making 26 more. (I ran out of ribbon at 26 so that was the cutoff.) I started with a White Daisy cardstock base layer sized at 4 x 5 1/4 inches. I added 1 7/8 x 2 1/2-inch strips of Cranberry cardstock to the base and then layered on patterned paper from the Jubilee paper pack. I stamped the second generation of the branch/leaf image in Topiary Exclusive ink using a stamp from the Jubilee Workshop On The Go stamp set. (Jubilee is a perfect workshop for your summer scrapbook layouts, by the way.) I then added a strip of Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon to the card using mini glue dots. The Indian Corn Blue cardstock circle is cut at 2 7/8 inches and stamped in Indian Blue Exclusive ink using a stamp from the Jubilee Workshop On The Go.  The "hello"sentiment is from the Patterned Pennants stamp set (retired) and is stamped in Cranberry Exclusive Ink on a 1 3/8-inch White Daisy cardstock circle. The circles are popped up with dimensional adhesive. For the final touch, I added a yellow paper flower with an acrylic flower in the middle and a butterfly cut from Outdoor Denim cardstock.

Here are a couple of close-ups:




And here is the card once again:


I hope you enjoyed a little creative mojo to kick off the weekend. (And I hope that my fellow CTMH consultants like their swap!) Have a wonderful weekend!
