Happy Birthday Mom!

Hello dear friends!
As my title suggests, my Mom is having a birthday (on the 27th) and she will be a very young 85 years old.  It's hard for me to imagine my mom is this age since I have trouble keeping up with her, lol!  She's so busy working 2 jobs, singing, dancing.  Yep ... she's a go getter!!

So today's card was created with her in mind.
It's Mojo Monday time and I've been enjoying creating for a few fun sketch challenge blogs since the new year began.  I must say it has really made me get out of my slump and think outside the box.  LOVE THAT!!!  Anyways, this week's sketch at the Mojo Monday Challenge is ...


And here is my card ...
(inside)

I am just loving some of the images I'm finding online such as the one I've used on today's card.  My mother loves the vintage/Victorian design so I think this image will be perfect.  Even though the image was square, I printed it a little larger so I could die cut it using the Spellbinder 'Lacey Circles'.  And, I thought the paper doily was perfect for this image also.



Do you enjoy working with sketches?
Well the Mojo Monday sketches are always a fun way to begin.  Give it a try why don't you!
