♥ So {Shabby} Sweet! ♥ MOJO181

Tomorrow is my son Antonio's 5th Birthday...where does the time go! It feels like yesterday. He is super excited to be bringing cupcakes into school for all his friends to share. And we will be watching the Sprout channel tomorrow to look for his birthday card that mommy made him. Hopefully it will make it on the air. {It has the last 2 years!} Then on Sunday all of the family will be coming over to help him celebrate! I wish I could find a magic potion though, to keep him at this age! Anyone have any?? :) Here he is in his karate uniform last week after he got it! He was so happy!
I love this vintage french Chocolate label! It can be used for so many different things. And you can download it for free too! Just visit The Graphics Fairy HERE! LOVE this blog!
I also used some papers by The Girls' Paperie, a tea stained hear doily and roses by The Little Pink Studio, Maya Road chipboard, mini handmade tag, seam binding ribbon, Melissa Frances resin key and rub-ons and pearls.
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch. I turned it around a bit. But what a fun sketch!
I was also inspired by the following challenges:

Paper Play Challenges: Shabby Chic/Vintage
Cupcake Craft Challenge: Pink Polka Dots
♥ And this beautiful inspiration photo from Off the Wall Craftiness!
Have a wonderful day!

Hugs...

Another really, really beautiful card, Melissa! Love all the detail. That paper has been one of my most fave recent lines. Love what you did with it.
And happy birthday to your cutie patootie. That age is so sweet. I sure wish I could have figured out how to bottle it up forever. :)
