Moxie Fab World Challenge: Ruffles!

Moxie Fab World is hosting a new challenge: use ruffles of some sort on your card...

i totally went gingham Christmas on this one. used some October Afternoon paper, flower gems, Martha Stewart snowflakes again, my DeNami glitter, and a Paper Co. stamp. plus, you see that vintage button? it's amazing. actually much redder IRL.
so for this challenge, i saw the sample pictures Cath put up on the blog, and then i went ahead and pulled out some fabulous ribbon i bought in a fiber pack at Impress Rubber Stamps in Tukwila. i'm in love with this ribbon.

IRL you can see how the reds in the paper, ink, patterned paper, ribbons, and buttons all go together. here, in my mushie picture, it's not so clear. my apologies. BUT! speaking of Impress Rubber Stamps, i'm going to attend a stamp night THIS saturday! w00t w00t! i am so excited. last time i went with friends and we had a ball--pizza, stamps, ink, and 10% off all purchases... can you say amazing?! oh, and that stitched stamp is from Impress & the last time i was there... hehe!

oh>> in other good shopping news, i'm going to be at the CK Convention in Bellevue, WA with fellow blogger and amazing card-maker, AMY :D can't wait to meet up and spend some $$ (well, maybe just the getting product, not the spending $$ part ;) hehe) so i'm getting busier by the moment, but i think you'd all agree that it's a GOOD busy, especially when it involves crafting! am i right?

anyway, thanks for looking, and don't forget to enter yourself into the challenge by Oct. 26th!


(BTW, this is post #150! who woulda' thought?!)

I like. I just went downstairs and checked what the card looks like in real life, and you're right...the reds are definitely more in sync than you'd suppose. Great card - I especially like the button & ruffled ribbon.
