Hi there! How are you doing today?

I have a fun little card to share with you today. I picked up this new handbag last weekend and one of my first thoughts was how much fun it would be to replicate the pattern on a card. When I saw the current Moxie Fab World Challenge, the Offset Scallop Gallop I knew I needed to get my butt in the studio!

Here is a photo of my handbag inspiration.. funky, fun, and a little fallish, huh?

And here is my card.. also fun, funky, and a little fallish! ;)

I used the large scalloped border die from Papertrey Ink to cut each of my strips of cardstock. The sentiment is from the WMS Teeny Trees set, a phrase creeping into my daily conversations courtesy of Claire!

I hope you'll take some time to be inspired by a recent trend or purchase and create something. The Moxie Fab contest is open until October 4. I hope you have a great day!


Stamps: Teeny Trees - Waltzingmouse Stamps
Cardstock: Dark Chocolate, Vintage Cream, Ripe Avocado - Papertrey Ink; Bermuda Bay, More Mustard; Riding Hood Red - Stampin' Up!
