MOJO303 Friend

Good Mojo Monday morning! 

To see all the beautiful cards at the Mojo Monday blog, click here!

Today's card is for a friend of mine, to celebrate her birthday and her graduation. 

On Champagne cardstock, I stamped the chicken wire CTMH Distressed Background in Desert Sand Ink. 

I layered that on top of craft card stock, then layered and added a sentiment from the My Stickease Buzz and Bumble package.


One of the fruits that's been lying on my work desk added a beautiful touch to the sentiment. It's the peach branch from the  Sweet Life set, which I colored with watercolor pencils.

The wooden button and the twine are from the wooden mini-medley set, and I placed them on tip of an extra fussy-cut leaf, which is on one of the pieces of zip-strip from the Buzz and Bumble papers, layered on Creme Brulee cardstock.

Thank you for looking today!

  4. Thank you, ladies, for the kind comments! @Diane -- I have been wanting a chicken wire stamp for sooo long! I was just excited to get to use it!

  5. Love the chicken wire background!
    The branch of fruit and the button go so well is like the button is a crosscut of a piece of fruit with seeds!
    Lovely card.

    1. Thank you Mo! I didn't even think of that aspect of the button. You are so right! Dadgum, I'm good...LOL!

  6. Such a lovely sentiment again, Dawn and I love the chickenwire bg and peaches!
