Monday Mood Board #12

This is my first time playing along with the WPlus9 Monday Mood Board Challenge.  The inspiration photo is always so bright and cheerful with lots of different items for you to draw inspiration from.  Here is this week's picture.

May is a big birthday month in my family and I need several  birthday about an hour actually, so this challenge was a huge help to me.  I loved the primary colors, the chevrons, the candles and the overall happy vibe this board gave me.  
I just got this stamp set (A Pocketful, WPlus9) from my sweet friend's one I have wanted for a long time.  I love the pocket and all of the cute elements you can add to it.  I decided my pocket would be full of birthday candles, all lit up ready to be blown out.  The candles are a die from Serendipity Stamps (Cupcake and Candle Die).  I cut the chevrons on my cameo and impressed the orange panel with the polka dot impression plate from PTI.  The top corner looked a little bare so I added the circle arrow, again cut on my cameo and the stamp is a very old stamp of mine, not even sure where I bought it.  
This was a fun challenge, one I am sure I will start to play along with more often.  You have two weeks now to make your Monday Mood Board card...lots of time to come up with something fabulous.

I just LOVE this. How fun that we were working on the same challenge at the same time. And, our cards are so different, too. Just like 4 of a kind. I love the idea of the candles in the pocket. That is super fun. I hope that you don't light them until you take them out of the pocket--ouch!

Fabulous birthday card, Cathy! I'm so glad you got that WPlus9 set. It's such fun--you will love it! You can use that pocket for so many things. Great idea to add the candles but like Joyce said, "Remember to remove B4 lighting!!"
