An A-MAZE-ing Mashup

Great Mashup idea this week, ladies... thank you!
So this set (Totally A-maze-ing) is from the occasions mini. I don't know why, but I was drawn to it immediately.

To be honest, my mojo is still really missing. I struggled this weekend during my creative time. On Saturday I just couldn't get going. So, I used my most recently copy of Stampin' Success and CASED the card in there. (Do you recognize it? The one on the right?) I spent a long time working on that one and then just gave up for the day. The one on the left, I did come up with my self... yeah me... finally a modicum of mojo returned (not a ton of mojo, mind you... just a bit...)

Here's my own creation. I used the maze stamp in Bashful Blue, stamped off once, to create a background. Yep... that was my idea... The rest of the card was taken from the idea in the magazine. I did change the color (to pastels for the Mashup). I also added a bit of color punched with the ribbon punch and hidden behind the sentiment panel. I also changed the "Happy Birthday" stamp from the one that was used in the magazine (and I could have used the same one 'cause I have it... but I didn't... so I am making a few choices here!)

Thanks for looking! I tried.... I have another idea to post in a bit. I did keep working and my mojo did increase a bit... by accident...
