So after I was done with yesterday's scrapbook page, I kept my paper scraps close so that I could make a card with them when time allowed. The Mojo Monday sketch #352 was just perfect for that so I looked in my stamp collection for something that could work with the colors and decided on Cathy Caffeine.
This stamp set comes with its own sentiment ("Coffee - the most important meal of the day") but I wanted a French card so I looked in my reference biner (which is not complete but I am slowly building so I have a quick reference to my stamps) to find something that could work. When I spotted "Let's drink to your birthday" from SU!'s Happy Hour set, I knew that would work great and that I could stamp it on the side of my image.
The Mojo Monday sketch calls for a long skinny card, which is one of my favorite card formats. I usually do the 3-1/4 x 6-1/2 format since I still have envelopes from SU! in that format, but this was too narrow for my image, so I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board and looked at the card sizes printed on it to find a card format that would work with my image and that would ensure I could make a matching envelope for afterwards. At the risk of repeating myself, I LOVE that tool!
