It's Monday....

Aren't I up early?  
Just couldn't wait to get to my Mojo Monday and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge cards.

After I make my DH some breakfast, I'll be back to add details and the rest of today's challenges.

For the Mojo Monday Mother's Day card, I broke out a new paper pack called Chocolate Covered Cherries from Little Darlings, that I won quite a while ago.  All the pieces are distressed around the edges in brown ink.  The rose and sentiment are from a Sparkle n Sprinkle stamp set called My Rose Garden.  I stamped the rose multiple times, did some fussy cutting and layering, then added a touch of glitter to the edges.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment.  Finally, I added a few brown pearls and a butterfly charm.
I am entering the Mother's Day Card into these additional challenges:
Addicted to Stamps Challenge #102 - Girly but no pink 
Blessings Ink Amusing Challenge - Butterflies
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge #132 - include a Butterfly
Brown Sugar Challenge #141 - Distress
Jo's Scrap Shack Fun Friday Challenge #82 - Florals and Butterflies
Sparkle n Sprinkle April Challenge - Anything Goes with glitter, embossing powder or flocking.

For the Atlantic Hearts Birthday Card, I used some CTMH hopscotch and fundamental papers.  Stamps are CTMH Happy Birthday Australia and Holiday Tags sets.  I paper pieced the balloons, added some glitter gel to the cake frosting, and some liquid glass to the flames and kangaroo's nose.
Now that I think of it, I should have put the kangaroo piece on a spring.  That would have been fun.  Next time.
I am entering the Birthday Card into these additional challenges:

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Children's Cards
