Two More Moxie Fab Projects

This is actually the final card I made for the Moxie Fab World Color Inspiration challenges. The challenge is the Pretty Pastels Challenge, and as much as I love the colors, it is the one I had the most trouble with! I used Rose Red, Lavender Lace, Pale Plum and Pink Pirouette.

The stamps are from Vintage Vogue, and I did the rock and roll technique with lavender and plum when stamping the flowers. They are then cute out and applied with pewter brads. The butterflies are from the SU! Sizzlit die and the panel is embossed with the Sizzix folder from SU! I used the side that was debossed, because I liked the change of texture. The rhinestones are from my stash. I based the layout on the CPS sketch 203.

Let me say I am aware that I broke the Rule of Three by using 4 of the butterflies and flowers, but I still like it!

The card below is for the Jewel Tones Color Challenge from Moxie Fab World. I used Elegant Eggplant, Crushed Curry, Taken with Teal and Sahara Sand card stock. The star is punched with the SU! Extra Large Star punch, and I forget the name of the stamp set. The panels are embossed with the Cuttlebug star folder.

Here's a close up to show the ruffled ribbon and the punched star. The ribbon is dotted grosgrain in Crushed Curry. I colored in the words on the star with a yellow Spica pen.

Re: CPS Sketch
I like that embossing folder - what's it called?

Okay, these two cards are wonderful examples of CAS but that second one knocks my socks off. Super color palette, great lines and brill with the embossing. I bet you could get that one published...
