My design inspiration began with this week’s Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge (MOJO438).


  • The Happy Birthday sentiment with a fabulous font is from Perfect Pairings stamp set.

  4. Oh Mary, this is such a stunning card. Your imagination and designing skills are second to none. I would like to ask if you sell your cards. Thanks for sharing your talents.

    • Thank you, Loretta. Your kind feedback means so much. I do not sell my cards. About 90% have a destination in mind when I create them (friend, birthday, sympathy). If I end up with too many on hand, I donate them 🙂

  5. Another great design with a unique color palette! Always love seeing your matching envelopes!

    This could work for a guy or gal with these colors and papers. I love the way they appear to be blowing in the wind and not just straight up and down. The linen thread is another fun touch. I loved your take on the sketch and this is one I will CASE! I wish I had the balloon punch now to create this card. If you don’t have anyone special to send this card to, I would gladly take it though it is s not green for St. Patrick’s Day. I love the crumb cake too. Great job as always. I miss being a hobby PAL but just can’t justify the money at this point.

  7. I love this sketch and how you built your card around it Mary, very festive, fun and with fabulous colors, it’s the perfect card for a young boy’s birthday.
    Thank you for sharing.

  8. Sweet colors, great card. Love your use of this paper.

  9. GREAT CARD Mary. Who wouldn’t LOVE to receive this sassy fresh card.
