Mojo Monday Birthday Card

I have a sweet friend who has a birthday this week. This card is for Trish. I loved the sentiment which said, What a wonderful world . . because you are in it." She's very active in the lives of all six of her children and scrapbooks really fast to preserve their memories. She blesses those around her with her sweet thoughtfulness. And we, her friends, are amazed at how calm she is in the midst of pressures.

This Mojo Monday design by Julie Tilman went perfectly with the Dreamin' papers from Close To My Heart. The Goldrush cardstock was embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  I lightly sponged the raised design with Brown Bag ink. The blue scallop is one of the "zip strips" that now border the CTMH patterned papers. I used a one eighth hole punch and mini-brads to bring out some of the design on the strip.  Happy Birthday, Trish!
