Mojo Monday 281 Birthday Blessing

This was a quick, fun birthday card to make. I started with the Recollections flower that I wanted to use and added My Mind's Eye paper and some ribbon to match. This is a color combo that I find refreshing. I used a dark brown Bazzill mat and button, but they almost look black in my photo. I looked in my ribbon stash for a blue to match my sentiment mat and came up with one that also had the green of this paper. I've been scrapbooking and "collecting" ribbon for so many years I can't remember the source.

I overlapped my circles and ribbon a little differently than the sketch, but I know the Mojo Makers won't mind! My intent was to make the circles and embellishment a cluster, my favorite way to embellish, leaving a little extra "white" space near the top. The stamp is from Our Daily Bread Design's "Happy Birthday." The button, sorbet waxy flax, leaves, and mocha opaques (pearls) are from Close To My Heart.

I'm sharing this card with the following challenges:

Inky Chicks #4 - Birthday (or Mother's Day)
Papertake Weekly - Buttons and/or Bling (mocha pearls)
