EBTKS-Challenge #4

OH mY gOSh!
You have got to check out the fabulous fun cards from the talented Designers over at http://ebtkschallenge.blogspot.comI thought about making a card all week long. Finally, I figured out what I wanted to do -- in the middle of the night - ha ha! Then I made the mistake of checking out everyone's entries and now I'm not so sure I want to post my card :o) There are some fabulous creative ladies out there in Blogland. Well, I did have fun with this and that's the point of these challenges, right?

My Card~ The trees are punched squares cut in half diagonally and taped onto the toothpick trunks
Stamp: "Merry Christmas" from Making Memories clear stamp set 'FaLaLa'
Ink: Library Green from Archival Inks
Card stock: White base card, navy blue, white glossy (snow) and greens (trees) is all from my SU stash (sorry, don't know the proper color names)
Cuttlebug Folders: Snowflakes (dark blue), Divine Swirl (trees) and Swiss Dot (snow)
Punch: 1 1/4" Square from EKSuccess
Embellishments: White pearls from Marth Stewart, green sheer ribbon form Michael's, Crystal glitter on snow from Stickles

Moxie Fab- Tuesday Trigger

Moxie Fab has been issuing a fun new challenge each Tuesday. You are to create a card based on inspiration from a photo sent into Cath. I've tried on many occasion to meet the deadline and for one reason or another, I've just missed it :( Well, I was bound and determined to submit something this the patchwork stocking and quilt from Pottery Barn. I didn't have a Christmas stocking but found this puffy gold reindeer which adds to the Christmas theme. Also realized I only had one (can you imagine!) mat stack of papers with red and white DP to use. Anywho, this is my card. Hey, I'm so early, maybe I'll be able to submit another one before Monday :o)

My card ~
Cardstock: Base white is a Martha Stewart note card. Squares of patterned paper from "Generations" stack pack
Embellishments: Gold reindeer puffy sticker from "Holiday Time", Organza Red ribbon from "Creative Accents",
Tools: Square punch from EKSuccess, border punch from Martha Stewart

You all know I love to hear from you and really appreciate your comments. Have a great eventing!
