winter blossoms moxie fab style...

It's me again...okay, so this isn't a white base but it is a non-kraft base card...I managed to get Sherry to agree that it would be okay:)  {for those that don't know, I'm having a friendly competition with my bloggie friend Sherry...she's a white base girl and I'm a kraft girl so we're switching it up}.

I'm still lovin' the Stampin' Up Long Notes...this one is So Saffron.  I layered up some Creamy Caramel and Blush Blossom.  The top 2 panels have been embossed and what's that?  Well, yes, that is a smidge of a vellum belly band {so to speak}....I even ran it through my crimper...yes, my crimper which hasn't seen the light of day for years...I'm surprised that I could even find the puppy.

I've had the glitz'd up PTI butterfly floating around on my work top so I decided to add her to my mix.


Gotta love that corner chomper...I had someone ask me why I needed one of those...as long as you never use one, you won't think you need one...once you use it, you're hooked.


This lovely color combo is compliments of the current Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger:



Oy Vey...I love them...love them for the soft muted colors which I picked up in my card.  I added embossing for the frilly texture within the picture...

Yesterday we actually had sunshine...I'm so ready for spring.
