The Paper Players and Mojo

Before I get to my card, I have to tell you my exciting news.  My card, the mouse with the strawberries, was picked as a Perfect Princess over at Freshly Made Sketches!  I'm thrilled and smiling from ear to ear!  Thank you, Tui!


Today's card is for The Paper Players, use an animal or plant, and the MOJO sketch.  I really liked how this one turned out, except for the line that I drew.  The sketch showed stitching around the rectangle piece so I thought I would just draw a line ... mistake.  Have to admit I was lazy and didn't want to redo it so left it as is ... added character to the card.  

Stamps:  Button Buddies, Fabulous Phrases
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Pretty In Pink, Certainly Celery, White
DSP:  Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink
Ink:  Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Pretty In Pink, Chocolate Chip, Versamark
Accessories:  polka dot embossing folder, brads, word window and modern label punch, button, embossing powder, sponge daubers, dimensionals, ribbon (non SU)
All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.
  • I used sponge daubers to make the sky and grass.
  • Ms. Piggy was embossed with clear embossing powder
  • Had to be careful on what sentiment I put on the front.  I sure don't want to hurt someone's feelings.  Never know how people will take getting a card with a pig on the front.
Today I am off to Birmingham to attend the Lamp of Learning Ceremony to see Bethany get her Nursing pin.  After the reception we get to tour some of the labs.  I'm really looking forward to seeing those.   I am hoping I get to take her out for dinner before hand to celebrate.  She is working so hard and doing so well.   Can you tell I'm a proud Mom? *smile*

As always, thanks for stopping by and ...

Have a great day,
Pam~
