Simply Sketched Mojo Monday Birthday Card

My card today was done using the Mojo Monday layout
I have done these layouts a few times but I tend to use the Split Coast Stampers ones more.  I guess because I have those coming to my email.  I'm sure there is a way to sign up for the Mojo Monday layouts but I really don't need anymore emails or layouts.  I have printed out the Split Coast layouts and have them in a photo album so I can refer to them when I need a layout or if I struggle with an image size.  I just take that image and page through the album until I find one that it fits in and then I just go from there with colors and embellishments.

Today's card was made using the Venetian Romance decorative paper.  I didn't think I had any of it but I did!!!  It's amazing what you find when you tidy up things a bit!!! LOL  

I used a paper doily but with the way the sketch is laid out you can use a scalloped circle too.  I did change the layout a bit.  I wanted to use the Happy Birthday words from the "Simply Sketched" set but they wouldn't fit in the little image that was shown in the layout.  SO I just used the words and made that spot bigger.  I also moved it over.  I also moved the flower part over a bit too.  The sketch had it in the center and I didn't think it looked right so I moved it over.  I do like the way it turned out and I SO love how Tangerine Tango and Crisp Cantaloupe go together so well.  Oh and don't forget that little bit of Soft Suede behind the decorative paper circle.   

I like making cards now and then that don't require a lot of stamping.  All that was stamped here is the words.  So simple.  So quick and very pretty!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Love the tangerine and cantaloupe together. So cute with the doily.
