Mojo Monday 224 Challenge
My brother has a 65th birthday coming up this week. He was so kind to wish me "Happy Birthday" last year to me as "my oldest living blood relative". That was a huge NO NO, so I designed this sympathy card using this week's sketch. I of course wished him Happy Birthday on the inside of the card, but you know how "older brothers" can be - especially when we were growing up and little boys sometimes never grow up either! LOL
I used basic creme colored cardstock for the base and used 3 different designs of Canvas Corp Black & Ivory collection. I used a Heartfelt Creations Die - Decorative Lace Border - to make my ribbon and "Thinking of You also is from Heartfelt Creations Dutch Iris Oval Pre-Cut Set. Used Spellbinders to cut out the circle shapes. All of the edges were distressed with Black Chalk Ink. The flower is from Paper Element's Rub-Ons Tart from my stash.. As you can see, I pretty much followed the sketch with own interpretations about the ribbon type embellishment! I hope you like it! I wish that I could see my brother's face when he opens up his card!
