My favorites...

This card was a surprise to make really. I just went with the flow on this one and things just seemed to come together really well. I started out with wanting to do the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog Favorites challenge #55 with my favorite MFT stamp "Baby It's Cold Outside" (digital even). Then, I saw that the Sheetload of Cards October sketch would work for the MFT stamp quite nicely. Then, I had read the Moxie Fab World blog this morning and I think that's why everything turned plum purple! Purple is my favorite color, so I don't mind that it took over this card. ;) I also got to try out my scarf technique again with the braided thread borders that have been in my stash, in of course, purple. I also love how I was able to use ribbon saved from a Bed, Bath & Beyond wedding gift we had gotten back in July. I knew I would have a use for this pretty ribbon!

Enjoy! And thanks for stopping by!
