365 Cards - #73 and Cafe Mojo -Mocha Mojo Friday

It is Tuesday evening here in NSW Australia and you can certainly tell that winter is just around the corner. . .I love winter after the awful heat of the summer!!!  I killed two birds with one card again which doesn't happen too often.  If I had made my card pink, black and white I would have killed three birds with one card. . . never mind.  For 365 Cards the challenge was Tuesday Trio and your card had to include Circle, Scallops and Bling.  I think I filled the bill here and for Cafe Mojo it was about tools: stamps and the sentiment was a stamp from my new SU set Trendy Trees.  So there you have it. The card is over large not sure on the measurements as I picked up some cardstock and said to myself that it looked good enough to use the way it was and off I went lol.  The designer paper is from Creative Memories which I have had in my stash for over 12 months now so I thought it was time I used some of it.  The large flower in the middle I learnt just recently how to do it and you have to have two pairs of hands hehe when you make it. . . quite comical to watch let me tell you.
Well that is all from me for the evening.

So in the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with beauty.
The Gypsy

Supplies: SU Very Vanilla cardstock. SU Trendy Trees stamp set for the sentiment. Punches used were 1 1/4 inch circle, photo corner, word window, triple flowers, scallop border punches.  Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  SU Kiwi Kiss, Basic Black and Basic Grey stamp pads. Kaisercraft flower rhinestones and plain rhinestone.  SU black grosgrain ribbon. Creative Memories designer paper. Button from my stash of many buttons.

Beautiful Michelle! I like how earthy this feels - with a challenge of circle, scallop, and bling I think most will lean towards girly, so this is very refreshing and creative! I have Trendy Trees on my {very long} SU wish list :). I've been reading blogs from folks that went to the convention in Australia recently - sounds like it was a great time (and I LOVE that tote bag! I hope they have that in Salt Lake in Aug, because I want one!).
