Blissed Out Birthday...


To view the image up-close, please click on the photo.

It's another Mojo Monday and I have been dreaming about summer, so I thought I'd make a bright, bright birthday card for this week's challenge. I found this cute watermelon paper hiding in my stash and I was sad that I didn't get to use it during the summertime -- then I thought, why not bring back a little sunshine and put it to good use in September? I cut out the individual slices and adhered them in the Mojo pattern and did a little folding on the cheery ribbon for some dimension. Here's a little "Birthday Bliss" for when the cool autumn air comes breezing through town...
