Mojo Monday 78 and Cupcake Craft Challenge 31

I really enjoy participating in the various challenge blogs, but with working full time and being mom to a very active five-year-old, I don't have time to do all of the ones I like. It's great when I can combine a couple. For this card, I used the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday Challenge and the Cupcake Craft Challenge, which was to use brown with one other color - pink, blue or green. Obviously, I chose pink. :)

I chose one of my new Magnolia stamps for this card - Tilda Blowing Hearts. I must confess that when I first saw these images, I did not like them. But those cute little kids with no faces kind of grew on me. I am really enjoying working with them now. I put some Stickles on her little hearts and wings. I'm not sure how well it shows up in the picture.
I did make a couple of variations to the sketch. I moved the vertical panel from the left to the right side. On the left it looked like Tilda was blowing her hearts off the card. That variation was intentional. The other one wasn't. For some reason, I had it in my head that the ribbon was tied on the top of the center horizontal panel. It wasn't until I scanned the card and then looked at the sketch again that I realized it was on the bottom. Ooops - again.
Thanks for taking a look. Please be sure to stop by Mojo Monday and Cupcake Craft challenge blogs to see all the great cards submitted this week.
