Mojo Monday #234 - Happy Birthday Raj!

Tomorrow is my wonderful hubby's birthday.  Just a quick post on the birthday card I created for my DS and my DD to sign for their dad.  This is a roughly 5 x 5 card, following a sketch from Mojo Monday blog sketch #234, as shown below.

The base of the card is a square card from the Art Philosophy cart,  The silhouette cut of the family and the doily mat it's on, are images from the Silhouette Store, cut with the Cameo. The sentiment tickets were also cut with the Cameo using the print and cut feature, both tickets from the Silhouette Store.  I did some stitching to the three strips of cardstocks.  The middle brown cardstock was embossed with the Script CB folder. 

Below are some closeups:

 I added a cream-colored button and twine to the ticket sentiments.

I kind of screwed up on a couple of corners while stitching with the sewing machine, so to hide those mishaps, I punched a couple of "photo corners," punched with an MS puncher. 

The inside of the card, using the same kind of "photo corners" as the ones in the front. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Oh Melody this is a wonderful card. I saw this image in the store and immediately downloaded it because it's so very cute. You did a fantastic job with it. I love the stamp shaped image and the ornate corners. Very, very well done my friend!
