Happy Birthday Mona - CR84FN32 ...

... last Sunday saw the start of CR84FN32 - such lovely colours; I made a very bold and bright birthday card and sent birthday wishes to Mona - our brilliant leader!!  Well, today is Mona's actual birthday and my card (below) is on its way, although it's a bit late.  So this one's for you Mona - have a simply wonderful Birthday and best wishes for the coming year.




The layout is based on the Mojo Monday 194 - which sadly I missed - but I liked the layout and thought it would make a really pretty card.  Mona's card uses our lovely colours, but this time I've gone for a softer, more gentle feel.  I stamped a number of different backgrounds and embossed them with Kaleidoscope embossing powder so they have a subtle sparkle.  I made the topper by stamping the heart circle and colouring the hearts with Promarkers, and then adding a simple rosebud.  I know that Mona loves tulips, but I don't have any tulips, so I opted for a pretty yellow rosebud.

Stamps:  Waltzingmouse - Asian Gardens, Faux Fun, Gingham & Co, Pic-Nic Patterns, L'il Buddies, Roses in Bloom
Inks: Versamark; Memento - London Fog; Distress - Shabby Shutters, Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw
Promarkers: Duck Egg, Soft Lime, Lemon, Meadow Green, Apple
Spellbinders:  Standard Circles Lg (S4-114) die # 4; Big Scalloped Circles Lg (S4-249) die # 4
Accessories:  Ribbon, card from stash; Kaleidoscope embossing powder




Check out the inspiration photos - they really are super.  You've still got plenty of time to join in with CR84FN32.


The Mojo Monday sketch I used is here - shame I missed this one!




That's all for now - I'll be back later with some cards to share!  See you then.

It is a pity you missed that Mojo Monday because I love how you interpreted it. And they are just stunning colours together.

This is really lovely & I'm so taken with your stamped background ideas that I see. The colouring of that rose is lovely.
