Hi there! Hope your weekend is off to a fabulous start, mine is with this card that I made for the Moxie Fab World challenge "Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge in the Moxie Fab World ".  Not a colour pallette that I use often...if ever, but I wanted to play along and I was inspired by this little piece of fabric that I had on my desk.  The fabric was a little bag that I got with an Anthropologie purchase a while back when I joined a shopper club (of some sorts) and the tracker card was presented to me in the fabric bag.  I cut it into two and used one of the halves for today's card.  I stitched it onto a punched frame of sorts and layered onto a curry yellow layer and then backed it all onto the teal blue linen texture card front.  The challenge is to use navy and the two main flowers on the fabric panel are a true navy.  I used a SU punch on the canvas flowers, stamped the letters in navy ink, edged them in PTI Ocean Tides and placed foam behind each flower for some dimension.  The canvas shape at the bottom of the card was made with one of my Nestability label dies and I stamped a SU sentiment in black ink.  I added the K and Co. bird and some feathers from my stash of feathers.
I hope your winter weather is being kind to you today, the weather here in Austin is sunny!
Thanks for stopping by,
Chriss
