Mojo Monday - Happy Birthday Card

The Mojo Monday Sketch this week is one that I rotated 90 degrees to fit my idea better. I needed a Happy Birthday card and it just worked out better in a different orientation. That's what I love about working with sketches - you can rotate them and come up with so many different results that often, it's hard to tell what the original sketch actually looked like! 
I chose to use Avonlea paper for this card - and since I wanted to outline all my pieces in Slate cardstock, I stamped the sentiment using our new Pigment inks. I used Twilight and then embossed it with a combination of Prisma Glitter and Clear Detail Embossing Powder. It matches pretty well, I think. 


Enjoy,
Alyson
