Mojo 278: Happy Birthday To You

Hello! It's time for another Mojo Monday sketch (#278), and it's Round or Square week. Today's fabulous sketches are brought to us by Julee. I used the square sketch to make a birthday card for my dad, whose birthday is this Thursday.



This card came together fairly quickly once I figured out which patterns I wanted to use and rearranged them a few times. I used Birthday Bash (balloons and sentiment). Once I layered everything, I stamped the balloons and then pieced them, adding some foam tape to make them pop up.

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:
