Birthday Mojo

I do love those Verve sketches!
I needed a card for a dear sweet far away friend so when I saw this Mojo Monday sketch, I pulled out my Verve stamps and pulled this card together pretty quick! One thing really did lead to another!

I chose the Sweet Always designer papers from Stampin Up which reminded me of the "With Gratitude" Cuttlebug folder. And when I pulled out my orange ribbons to match the pumpkin in the DP, this flowered ribbon nearly
jumped right into my hand.
The sketch shows a row of pierced holes before and after the sentiment, but I went with a simple scored line instead. I've really been getting
some use out of my Scor-Pal. It's never far from reach!
One of my butterflies is paper pieced and popped up and the other colored with Shimmerz!
The birthday greeting is a rub-on, but it perfectly matched the "true friend" sentiment from Simple Friendship. I used my scotch tape trick and chose just the word "friend" from that stamp and added it to my butterfly panel. A few punched tiny flowers (using that same Michael's $1 bin punch I've been overusing lately) and some pearls and this card was in the mail to reach it's far away destination.
I hope my friend likes it!
