Mojo Happy Birthday

If you are looking for my Sparkle Creations Release Day post, please scroll down or click HERE!

Hello! Happy weekend! I have a few friends with September birthdays, so I thought I should get going on some cards before they become belated birthday cards.. : ) I also wanted to play with the latest Mojo sketch.

I started with some papers from the Crate Paper Restoration collection.. yummy! My cupcake is from one of Verve's new releases, Carpe Cupcake. I colored the top with Copic markers and paper pieced the bottom, added some Star Dust Stickles and coarse glitter for the sprinkles. After I cut it out with Spellbinders Standard Circle Nestabilities, I decided it needed a frame, so I added the dotted frame from Waltzingmouse's Faux Fun Circles, matted it onto a larger circle and popped the entire image over a doily (distressed with Versamagic Wheat). The sentiment is from Birthday Bash. I used the Mojo Monday #155 sketch for my layout:

I added more distressing and stitching around and spritzed it all with Iridescent Pearl Glimmer Mist. Here's a detail shot:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
