After "missing" last week's Mojo Monday sketch (aka: skipping the skewed panel sketch) I dove into this week's sketch with gusto and made it a two fer as I used the card for this month's Diva Dare as well.
Had a scrap of this Echo Park polka dotted DP laying around so decided to create my card around it. Started off thinking of using CR84FN's colour combo again and then ventured more towards Just Add Ink's colour combo and in the end used too many colours to qualify for either.
Since I had a brown "U" in my scrap pile, I build my sentiment around it and added "to" to the Happy Birthday sentiment so it flowed and made more sense than just Happy Birthday "U". A rose and a flower - both from my scrap pile as well - completed the card.
With summer here full force, I had another wonderful afternoon at the beach with the kids. They entertained themselves wonderfully by making sand castles, finding hermit crabs and swimming so I got to indulge in some reading and catching a few rays...aaaaahhhh... and we capped the afternoon off with a Booster Juice smoothie. Summer at it's best :)
