Bright Mojo Birthday card with a cut-out

I followed this week's Mojo Monday sketch to make a birthday card for another karate mom.  I was inspired to use a white hibiscus with a pink center, as that is her profile photo on Facebook.   Using the flower was also how this card meets the Pile It On challenge (Let us see flowers!).  I chose Watermelon to be the shade of pink I used, and I used the CTMH Color Combo site to come up with the coordinating colors.  Two bright cards in a row for me (although they won't be posted in order), and I like it!!  I guess I'm feeling ready for summer.  I know I'm ready to be over this nasty winter cold.

Papers: CTMH Sunkiss Yellow and White Daisy cardstock, CTMH Watermelon and White Daisy Textured Cardstock, CTMH Emporium
Inks: CTMH
Garden Green and Watermelon
Tools and Techniques: Silhouette Machine (flower), Cuttlebug, Happy Birthday embossing folder (which I rubbed the Watermelon ink pad over the front part of the folder before putting the paper in and running through the machine), Wright's ribbon, 3-D Mounting Foam, sponging.
Stamp Sets: CTMH Happy Birthday and  True Friends
