Mojo Monday 167, Color Dare 87, FTTC95, & Moxie Fab Thank You


Hi folks!  As you can tell from my title, I'm trying to play catch-up again and fit a few challenges into one card.  First, the sketch is for Mojo Monday:


The Color Dare challenge this week is to use Concord Crush, Perfect Plum, and Chocolate Chip.  Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge is to use doilies, and this card fits the Card Creations:  Favorite Occasions Week Thank You Challenge at Moxie Fab World.

Are you still with me?  LOL

This sketch seemed perfect for this paper doily from Martha Stewart.  I layered it with some chocolate felt and a flower from Verve's Dream Big.  The sentiment and leaves are from the same set.

I heat embossed the flower and sentiment, which looks a little funny in these pictures.  My poor camera is on its way out, which is not surprising since it is over 5 years old.  I'm hoping it will hold out at least through the holidays!

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Perfect Plum, Concord Crush, Chocolate Chip), Papertrey Ink (white)
Stamps:  Verve (Dream Big)
Ink:  Adirondack (Eggplant), Versamark
Tools:  Spellbinders (circle, scallop circle dies), Papertrey Ink (Diamonds impression plate, Limitless Layers die), Marvy Uchida (circle punch), Fiskars (hole punch)
Accessories:  Martha Stewart (paper doily), Stampendous (clear embossing powder)

I kept the inside simple as usual with an embossed strip of chocolate cardstock and some stamped leaves.


I'm off to bed, but feel free to email or leave me a comment if you have any questions!  Thanks so much for spending a few minutes here on the blog with me.  Have a wonderful weekend!
