Mojo Monday - Two Ways

Mojo Monday's sketch this week was quite fun and definitely timely. I needed a birthday card for a friend and wanted to make something ultra feminine and special. I started with the Birthday Wishes card above and thought the paper, feeling and design was perfect for her. As I was working on it, I kept thinking about the new Sweet Button embosslit and how cute the buttons would look across this same design. I then had to create the Happy Botday card at the top of this post. I just love those little buttons and I also think the Best Bots set is so fun to stamp with. I used a bit of Crystal effects to give the little buttons some shine and look just like real buttons. With the Button embosslit you can create endless buttons to match any paper.
