Celebrate...

Hello bloggers,

Here I am with a card after a long gap as I just did not feel like crafting. Yes, my mojo has deserted me and I had to kind of force myself to create a card.
Over at CAS(E) this Sketch is a lovely sketch this week and here is my take on it (I should have been a bit more careful with the layout).
 I will also enter this card in Less is More - the challenge there is create a card after the colour of your house door. And at CAS-ual Friday this week it is all about a clean and simple congratulatory card. I thought this card was a bit bland but my critique Zeenya approved it and off I went with it. The stamp is from a set of Hero Arts ribbon stamps which have hardly ever seen any light. I have cut the stamped section with  
decorative scissors and mounted it on another piece of card stock which has been stuck on that  textured ribbon. I have used pearlescent beige to stamp the sentiment and the beige ribbon at the bottom from my stash. 




Down below is Aleeza with her teacher and some of her friends. They all gathered to sing a song called, "Count on me" by Bruno Mars. I could not take pictures of the show as they were dancing and singing against a white background.


Wish you a pleasant weekend.

Love,

Monica

Hi, Monica! I have some of that "webbed ribbon" and have never used it. Sometimes I pull it out and put it back because I cannot figure out how to use it. Thank you for a good example! Maybe I'll use mine soon, too? Your card looks fabulous - your daughter's photo looks great (she is so pretty!) - and I am glad your mojo is slowly returning. Sometimes Mojo's need to go on vacations, too. love, de
