Mojo Monday #90 and Thanks!

I had such a wonderful day yesterday making cards to thank my friends and family for the sweet cards and gifts I received for my birthday. Here is a card I created for my friend Lisa who actually gave me this set for a gift!! I love roosters, as a matter of a fact, I plan to decorate my kitchen in roosters in a couple of months!!

I used the wonderful challenge at Mojo Monday's blog for the design of my card. I really love the challenges at Mojo Monday. They are always fun to do and definitely get my mojo moving : )

For this card I used solid cardstock by Stampin' Up. Sadly I have long since cut off the label on my delicious patterned paper. This is a scrap I used and after this card I'm afraid this paper is just about gone! : ( some papers are so great I wish I had 10 sheets!

I stamped my rooster on the patterned paper for the fine detail and then I stamped him on a solid cream colored paper, colored it and cut it out. I then placed it on the card using a pop dot to give dimension and so that I can have a clear image even though it looks like he is stamped right on the patterned paper. I like the result when using this technique.

I also used my Oval and Square Nestabilities by Spellbinders and a little snippet of some unknown gingham ribbon.

Thank you Lisa for your friendship and for your kindness to me and for all the giggles! And thank you friends for stopping by to see my cards : )

If you have not already done so - there is still time to sign my June 1st post to qualify for my blog candy. I will be drawing a winner tomorrow June 10th. : )

Love, Patti
