Today’s colorful birthday card was inspired by this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO248).


  • Stampin’ Up! One in a Million stamp set offers witty sentiments with coordinating interior messages.

  • Don’t forget that line images can be adorable when stamped on patterned paper.  The pinwheel (Stampin’ Up! Sweets for the Sweet) was stamped on the tiny heart pattern from Patio Party Designer Series Paper.

  • I stamped a second pinwheel (Midnight Muse Ink on Midnight Muse Card Stock).  Both pinwheels were cropped with my Paper Snips and layered on top of each other.
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels add a touch of bling to the scallop edge and center of the button!

  • A fourth coordinating pattern from Stampin’ Up! Patio Party Designer Series Paper was used to line my Whisper White Medium Square Envelope.  I love how everything blends together seamlessly.
