Moxie Holiday

I am loving the fall weather we're having now! I want to eat pumpkin bread and sip caramel apple cider 24/7. Therefore, I feel a little funny showing Hanukkah cards, but hey, it's not that far away and there's a Moxie Fab challenge!

The first card has a traditional color scheme of white, silver, and navy. The navy is actually the backside of a Christmas card someone sent us last year. It's really nice cardstock, I couldn't just let it go to waste! The cool background is the PTI Sunshine impression plate. I love that thing! I stamped the menorah from PTI's Mazel Tov in black and outlined it with a clear spica pen. The candles and flames are colored with copics. The silver cardstock is from GinaK and it is fabulous! It's nice and thick and embosses really well in the Nestabilities dies. The blue rhinestones were clear and I colored them with a navy bic marker. My heat gun and I haven't been getting along lately, but we called a truce long enough for me to emboss this sentiment without the whole page getting warped. I finished it off with this pretty white ribbon from Stampin' Up!. (Yeah, that does look weird with the exclamation mark and period. Remind me to always use Stampin' Up! in the middle of a sentence and not the end. Thanks.) The card base is 6x 4.5 inches.

My second card has most of the same elements - menorah stamp, sunshine plate, bling, nestabilities - but in a non-traditional color scheme. :) This is a dual challenge card as it's also for the Hope You Can Cling to card drive over at Splitcoast to send cards to MD Anderson Cancer Center. Lydia issued the challenge to make a pink holiday card so I made this one. This one uses Nestabilities Labels 4 and even more rhinestones.
