Another Moxie Fab Get Inspired Potpourri Challenge Card!!

Hi Again!

 

Can you believe it – posting two days in a row?!!  In my heart and mind, I’d post something every single day.  But somehow my life gets in the way of my intentions.  Anyway, I have another card that I created for the Moxie Fab Get Inspired Potpourri Challenge.  But before I do that, I wanted to mention that if you haven’t picked this issue up at your local craft or bookstore (or HERE), then you MUST!!  The projects in this magazine are AH-MAZING!!

Get Inspired Potpourri Joy

I really love the inspiration photo.  The clean classic lines, the cool old-world monogram on the mug, and the dainty contrast of the elegant silver chairs and the doily.  Every bit is delicious to me, don’t Potpourri Challengeyou think?  I stamped the J and the Y in black ink using a fun Theresa Collins alphabet set.  Then I punched that dainty snowflake ornament out of some textured silver cardstock (American Crafts), layering it with a black circle behind it so that the silver doesn’t get lost in that Razzleberry card base.  The holly is a PTI die – had to add the fuschia bling for the holly berries – just couldn’t help myself.  The “white space” of the card represents the white space of the monogrammed mug.  Thanks, Cath, for keeping my creative juices flowing with your inspirational challenges!!

 

I know this is a busy time of year for everyone, but you really should stop by the Moxie Fab World Blog and check out all the challenges that Cath has going on – they can be found on the right side bar of her blog.

 

When you read this, I’ll be snuggling with my little Brecken bug and enjoying the holidays with my kids.  I’ll be back on Friday with the next CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, so I hope you’ll stop by again soon!
