Happy Birthday Monica - Blog Linky Party + Prizes

Ya'll! (I know I'm not even close to being Southern, but it really makes for a perfect interjection)


Monica Taylor of TaylorMade4U Cards is celebrating her 50th year on this earth and she's invited some bloggy friends to celebrate with her. Not only that - Monica is giving away some seriously awesome prizes - like lots of them! 

How do you win said prizes? Check out that uber lovely mood board, put together by Monica to inspire you! She wants you to create a card inspired by the mood board and the word "Journey" and link it up. 

I loved the old timey car and was drawn to the browns and the blues I saw in the picture, so here's what I made:


I used some BoBunny papers and Tim Holtz stamp sets and added in some metal gears to complete the look. 

I'm also going to play along at:
Southern Girls Challenge - About a Boy

Aud Sentiments - Stamp your Sentiment
The Corrosive Challenge - Anything Goes
Come and Get it - Make it Square

So we don't have any party fouls, here are Monica's party rules:

1.  Look at the mood board and find something that reminds you of a JOURNEY.

2. Create a project and link it up. This can be a card, canvas or anything that inspires you and in any style.
3.  Follow Monica's blog & like her Facebook page
4. Leave me a comment
