Mojo monday 460, Happiest Birthday card

When I first saw the Mojo Monday sketch for this week, gold, black and white just popped into my head.  I took that as a sign that I was to do this one.   I never know exactly what I'll do but if I have some form of the card in my head to start with, I build on that.  Usually I add a pop of color to my Black and White cards, and I guess you could say I did this time, with the gold, but usually it will be red or pink or something.
But gold just settled into my brain.

Know that cute little set with the Llama?  Well, this sentiment is from that set, Birthday Fiesta, no Llama this time though.  This could easily be a masculine card, so I stayed away from anything that might make it more feminine.

The DSP is Pop of Pink, I love this set of papers. Black, white and Melon Mambo, it's perfect and the starts from the Metallic shapes worked well also.

So, let me know what you think! I love hearing your thoughts on my work. Too plain? Not plain enough?  I thought about using the arched stamps over top and bottom of the sentiment, but again, I wanted to keep it masculine.If you want to purchase anything or just check out the stamps and stuff, click on any image below to go to my store.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
