Mojo Monday 292 & Dynamic Duos – Happy Birthday

Hey everyone!  First things first, I just want to give you all a heads-up that the posts may be few and far between for the next few weeks.  Lots of things happening in the lovely month of May, so I’ll be busy busy busy.  I’m going to try to post at least twice a week, but we’ll see.  Don’t be alarmed if you don’t hear from me for a while!

And now, a card I made using this week’s Mojo Monday sketch and Dynamic Duos colors!  These two challenges go very well together, don’t you think?

I was so excited when I saw this week’s Dynamic Duos colors.  They are my favorites!  My old room is decorated in these colors, my wedding featured these colors, I have to consciously NOT decorate every room in our apartment in these colors.  I love them.

Here’s the card I came up with:

Happy birthday blue and yellow 1


I knew I wanted a lot of texture in this card, so I added stitching, a dry embossed panel, and I stamped a damask pattern onto blue card stock using light blue ink.  It lends a very subtle effect that I’m quite pleased with 🙂 The sentiment is heat embossed and popped up on foam squares.  That little rhinestone you see there at the bottom is actually a light blue.  Silly photography skills.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card!  There’s still plenty of time to play along with both Mojo Monday and Dynamic Duos, so get your paper out and craft! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Happy Birthday blue and yellow 2
