Clearly Moxie

This is a double dog dare....Kazan's sketch 19 @ 2 Sketches 4 You and Cath Edvalson's color challenge on her Moxie Fab World blog. The color challenge is yellow and gray....see that polka dot paper? It is actually from American Crafts Christmas line called Sleigh Bells Ring...the other side is a beautiful bright green...the yellow is Stampin' Up So Saffron along with their Basic Gray. It all sits on a transparency from Flourishes. The color combo really does remind me of Amy Butler...

paper: american crafts, stampin' up so saffron & basic gray accessories: misc flower & button, alpha from t $ spot, transparency from flourishes, stampin' up scallop punch

Clever use of the Christmas paper Amy! I love how the dp covers the transparency but enough of the clear shows through. So pretty!

Love your card, especially the transparency of it. I've not worked with that before, it looks great!
