Mojo Monday

Good morning everyone! It's another Mojo Monday Challenge day and this time it's Carole who has provided us with a great sketch!  I knew I wanted to create a birthday card, since our fearless leader, Julee, has a birthday this week - Thursday to be exact!  HaPpY bIrThDaY, Julee!  I'll confess my creative juices were not in action when I went to create this card last evening.  I pulled out this chevron cutting plate and die cut the BG using the new SU color, Smoky Slate.  I won't bore you with details of the many attempts and redos that occurred after that, but this is the final result which doesn't make me want to do any somersaults, but it will have to do!  I did get really excited when I discovered that the center portion of the Rounded Scallop Frame die fit perfectly as a layer behind the sentiment stamped on a Classy Label die shape!  It's the little things - lol! :-)  I stamped 5 of the flower images on X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics, then fussy cut and layered with foam dots.  The silver bling is by Jolee's.
