A Moxie Fab, Mojo-rific, paper buttons post!!

Happy Monday to you!!

I decided to jumble a BUNCH of challenges together today!! I have had a hankering to make a card and Oh boy did I make one!!

I am NOT going to tell you how long this took me or how many times I redid a few things on this card.... (OK a LOT) :D

First things First I am cutting it close to the Moxie Fab Around the House challenge Deadline!! Oops! I really wanted to play along this time! I LOVE moxie Fab and am a quiet follower...everyone who plays along and is featured is so talented! I really dont put myself up there at that caliber but it was a blast to push myself to make something good!

I used the Mojo Monday 105 sketch! It gave me a great challenge, that triangle is a toughy!

Third I used the SplitcoastStampers TLC239 challenge to make paper buttons! This was so cool and fit great with the mojo sketch! I punched out 6 pieces of cardstock including the patterned paper and glued them together and coated the top with crystal effect! cool! The coffee cup is also cover in crystal effects. I used black ribbon and I sewed this on by hand! woo hoo! The stamps are from Unity Stamp Company, the coffee cup is from the September KOM and the sentiment is from the May KOM. Paper is Wisteria dp from BasicGrey.

Stamps Used: September 09 KOM, May 09 KOM
Paper Used: White cs, dark chocolate-PTI Wisteria dp-BasicGrey
Ink Used: Chocolate chip, river rock-SU
Accessories Used: Crystal effects, hemp twine-SU, sponge for ink, black ribbon, needle and thread

I hope you have enjoyed this card and thanks so much for stopping by!!
Have a great day!
Till Later!
