Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Challenge: Elegant Emerald

Hey again!

It's a post-everyday-for-a-week kinda month, sooooo, I thought I would double up to play along with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger challenge: Elegant Emerald.  Wowie, that is quite the dress, no?  I certainly couldn't get away with an outfit like that...

I reached for Mama Elephants Modern Borders and used that fabulous offset scallop for my gradient stamping.  I just thought it resembled those ruffles!  I stamped the border using two different Turquoise colors, cut the panel down, and using this weeks Sunday sketch from Studio Calico, adhered it to a white card base.  

I then trimmed my sentiment strip, adhered a bit of gold paper to the base and popped up the banner.  I then stamped, colored and trimmed that gorgeous butterfly and popped that up as well.

Here is a look at that picture:

Funny story that, well, actually it isn't really that funny...I have to be THE sloppiest stamper in existence.  Period.  I get it all over my hands, and it usually ends up on my project.  So, not to my surprise, I am totally done with my card, and lo and behold there in the corner are lovely ink smudges.  ACK!  How?  I washed my hands right after all of that stamping, i swear it!  lol, well, I managed to get that panel up and transfer it to a clean white card.  The end.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend crafty friends!
