Mojo Happy Birthday Papa!

Hello! It's time for a new Mojo Monday sketch (#176).. this week the sketch is super flexible.. round or square! Today is my Dad's birthday (Happy Birthday, Dad!), and this is the card we sent to him from Sabrina!

I chose a couple of bright and fun patterns from the Echo Park - Little Boy collection. On the green polka dot paper, I clear embossed stars all over from Verve's Polka Stars. I stamped "Happy Birthday" (from Happy Thoughts) and cut it out using Spellbinders Star Nestabilities. I added some stitching and star rhinestones from Pizzazz Aplenty, then I popped it onto my main panel. I thought it would be fun to add buttons all along the wavy part separating the two patterned papers. I tied some Divine Twine through each button. "PAPA" was spelled using stickers from the same Echo Park collection.

Here's this week's fabulous sketch:

I hope you will play along with us this week! Please visit the Mojo Monday blog for all the details and to see the wonderful creations by the Mojo Makers! You can also visit their individual blogs for more details (see my sidebar for links to each).
