Mojo Monday Week 86

Good mojo Monday morning! Hope the mothers out there enjoyed a blessed Mother's day yesterday. Mine was pretty good and I am so blessed to have my 3 wonderful girls to have shared it with.

Hope you enjoy Julee's sketch for this week. See my sample and the sketch below:

My birthday card stash has depleted so I thought I would try to replenish it. I thought that the adorable Olivia owl would be great for this week's sketch. Sweet N Sassy stamps has 3 different Olivia stamp sets available and I personally think that they are some of the cutest owl sets out there. For my card I used 2 of them, Owl Celebrations and Sweet Dreams for the branch. I stamped my images and colored them with copics except for the balloon which was paper pieced. I cut the branch out omitting the leaves because I did not want green in my card and pieced it beneath Olivia owl. I popped up the balloon and party hat with pop dots and stickles glitter glue was used to accent the hat and presents. The rhinestones in the scallops were clear but then after I remembered that I could color them pink with my copics so I did!

The inside of the card uses sentiments from SNSS birthday greetings set which were stamped in brown over the top of the present image which was stamped in pink

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps Owl Celebrations, Sweet Dreams and Birthday Greetings
Cardstock- Paper Temptress orange fizz poptones and Chocolate sorbet, Neenah white (available at both Paper Temptress and Sweet N Sassy stamps), SU dp
accessories- rhinestones, copics (RV10, RV11, RV13, YR16, E37, E29, E47)
