Moxie Fab World Trendy Triangles Challenge

The Moxie Fab World Trendy Triangles Challenge came along at just the right time for me to make a Jamaican-inspired card for a Reggae-loving friend with a birthday. The colors of the triangles in the inspiration photo kickstarted my card.
 
 
 
 
I punched the triangles out of cardstock, adhered them to the card base, stamped a few extra triangles and then the words.

 
For the inside of the card, I printed the Jamaican birthday song using the CK Yah Mon font. 

Now dis is de birthday sang
Fah JoEtta fram me
Enjoy your special day
Mek sure ave some fun
Suh gadah roun right now
Cum an sing alang
Appy Birthday
To yuh now JoEtta
Appy Birthday

Happy Birthday, Mom

Today is Mom's birthday - she would have been 86. I gathered a few photos mostly from this blog to re-post as a remembrance. At a later time, my brothers and I can put together a longer version as we go through the family photos and letters.
