Havin a Mojo Moxie Shabby Chic Kind of Day!

 ***If you're looking for Travel the World Wednesday - Germany Please Clicky Click Here!***

I'm so clever.  The title for this post is for each challenge this post is entering! I made a separate card for each challenge:  Mojo Monday 203, Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger, and the Shabby Tea Room week #74.

First up is MOJO MONDAY sketch 203! I was craving the need for a nice autumn card and this sketch was gonna fill it. I fell in love all over again with the DCWV Autumn Stack from 2009! I barely used it, but I'm definitely going to this year, two years later :)

All patterned papers from the 2009 dcwv autumn stack. Border punch is ek success, the 'hello' stamp is from tpc studios.

Second up is Moxie Fab's Tuesday Trigger! I need to admit... I hated this trigger. I thought the dress was busy and ugly and so hippy dippy it probably bled peace signs and LSD.  Needless to say, I was not the most inspired by it, and it was a huge challenge. I am not particularly liking the card I made, but hey... I need to show the good, the bad, and the really ugly...

So for this card I was 'inspired' by the mix and match patterns, and the curves, and the multiple layerings.  Guess which stack I used for this baby?  All patterns are from one sheet of paper in the DCWV Hippie Chic Stack. I cut apart the different patterns in the one paper and pieced it back on this card.  The sentiment stamp is from Hero Arts.

Third up and Last up is the 'Tea for Two' challenge in the Shabby Tea Room! The challenge was to get inspiration from the lovely photo, have a 'tea' theme and use the colors green and blue.

I made a teapot shape card!  The teapot shape is from Lettering Delights 'J'adore' svg set.  I made a shadow layer and welded the tea pot so the card is held together at the top.  The white is lightly inked with brown and light blue ink. To the delicate patterns on the teapot, I added silver and blue stickles for some sparkle :)

Thanks for peeking at all my challenge entries! These challenges just started so there is still plenty of time to participate!
