Mojo Monday - Father's Day Cards

It's a Round or Square week at Mojo Monday.  I really loved the sketch for this week and couldn't wait to try it out on some Father's Day cards.

I used the Passages Paper Pack to make two slightly different variations.  I also used the You & Me Stamp Set, and the Pennant Alphabet.  The ink colors are Cocoa and Garden Green.

The first version I made was this one.  I cut out the text box and stamped a second-generation swirl image behind the sentiment.  I didn't have any cute ribbon to match, so I used a strip of patterned paper mounted on Cocoa cardstock.  I used the reddish/copper toned Opaques from the Cocoa collection to link the pennants.
This is my second version.  I wanted to use the same basic materials in a slightly different way.  This time I left the text box as a rectangle and mounted it on Cocoa cardstock.  I changed the image I stamped behind the sentiment.  This time I put my patterned paper ribbon in front of the text box.  I arranged the pennants into a fan shape with the tiny Opaques at the corners and a larger one at the point.  I stamped some extra pennants in solid and polka dot and layered them beneath the button for a sort of bow-tie look.  I had a lot of fun making these cards - it was one of those times when everything fell into place.  Love this sketch!
