Photo Birthday Card For Mojo Monday Challenge 466

The Mojo Monday blog has a challenge each week using a fun card sketch. Once a month they hold a contest to see who wins and you can win a set of Verve stamps if you're a winner! This is for Mojo Monday 466, a challenge without a prize. I love challenges when they help me do something I normally wouldn't have done. Check out the blog here!

Here is how I interpreted the sketch. I did something unique for me, I added a photo to a card! That's my best friend Jessica on the left and me, 90 pounds heavier, on the right ;) The flowers came from a RAK and I made the butterfly a few years ago out of chipboard and the same paper stack as the background. I gold embossed the sentiment from Stampin' Up and sponged Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink on the edges of the circle and the base paper (Lost & Found from My Mind's Eye). Overall this is a simply made card that will be going in a package with her two gifts, a painting on canvas and a purse charm. I wanted to do something special since it's her 30th. I'll share those gifts in a later post!

Check out the sketch challenges on the Mojo Monday blog and don't forget October 3rd is World Card Making Day!
