This is my last challenge for a while….we are fly to Mexico in the morning to see our daughter who is serving with Dayspring Ministries.  She left for Mexico in January and will be there until August…this is about the half way point of her time there but more importantly it is her 18th birthday on Tuesday!!  We are so excited that it worked out for us to go visit and celebrate with her.  A great big thank you to my parents who came to take care of our business and make sure things run smoothly there.  So until our return from Mexico…no more stamping which also means no more blog posts.  With all that being said…here is my take on the Mojo Monday sketch challenge.

Card details:  Designer paper from Stampin Up…stamps from Verve…buttons, ribbon slide, and ribbon are from Stampin up…this card was created with just basic stamping and the use of designer papers, along with a few embellishments…thanks for stopping by!!

Card details: Color combo–Very Vanilla, Soft Sky, Midnight Muse, and Marina Mist…Stampin Up stamps–Six Sided Sampler with matching punch…1 1/4 inch Grosgrain ribbon for my banners…finished it off with a strip of gold embellishments.
