Moxie Fab Color Challenge

Let me just start by saying I don't usually like to play in color challenges because I really LOVE using patterned paper on my cards, and it's sometimes hard to find the perfect colors in PP to match a challenge. But when I saw the colors that Cath picked for the Moxie Fab challenge, I liked them so much I had to play!

I didn't even try to find matching PP, I just decided to do some embossing for interest and I really like how the card came out:

I used Papertrey Ink's set Beautiful Blooms because I knew I wanted to cut out the flowers with the matching Cuttlebug die. I cut the flowers first, and then stamped them with Fresh Snow ink. I also stamped the leaves with Fresh Snow from Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado cardstock, then cut them out.

For the background, I cut strips of the same green cardstocks, taped them together, then cut with the biggest of the Nesties Labels One dies. I took the strips apart and embossed them with the Swiss Dots and Birds & Swirls folders, then taped the strips back together.

I sewed the buttons on with crochet thread, then added foam tape for dimension. Lastly, I finished it off with some May Arts ribbon and American Crafts glitter chipboard letters. Hope you like it and TFL!
