Colorful Mojo

I thought I'd try another Mojo sketch from Julee's blog, Poetic Artistry. This one is Mojo Monday 38. I also followed the color challenge for Verve Visuals contest - Cool Carribean, Regal Rose, So Saffron, and Pumpkin Pie.
I started by inking the flowers in Regal Rose, and using the Rock and Roll technique to rock the edges in Pumpkin Pie. For the centers, I punched out a 1/8" (I think) circle and glued it to the faux dew drops from Michaels, using Diamond Glaze. I attached them to the Carribean, which had been Cuttlebug embossed using the Swiss Dots folder. Two of them are popped up on foam dots. To finish the panel, I added a strip of polka dotted ribbon, and an oval bookplate. Inside the bookplate, I stamped Happy using a Studio G alphabet.
The background was created with a piece of the Palette of Prints paper, cut the length of the card. Then I created the Carribean and Rose pieces using the same set - Spring Solitude - and then sponged the edges to give them some depth and to help seperate them from the yellow. The ric rac and Birthday tab were added as the finishing touches.
I will be giving this card to a friend at work who just got back from vacation. She told me when she got back that she celebrated her birthday while on vacation. I hope she likes it!
