The Fabric of Our Mo's

Please scroll down to see this week's fun
Sugar Bowl "Santa" ....

Hello again!! Guess what? It's time for another fun challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!! And, once again, my very talented friend, Dorcas, is our hostess!! This week, Dorcas has chosen another very unique theme...are ya ready? Here it is....

The Fabric of Our Lives!!

Yep...that clever little DT sistah of mine has challenged us all to add FABRIC to our projects this week!!'s what I came up with....

Allow me to introduce you to Maisie! I just fell in love with her when I first saw her in Mo's store!! You can find "Maisie Caroling" HERE in Mo's online store. I tell ya, she was pure joy to color!! last week I was paging through the January 2012 edition of "Cardmaker Magazine"...and my eye caught a darling card by Jeanne Streiff. She used cross-stitch fabric...and stamped directly onto it. So...of course I just had to give it a try!! And...I LOVE the effect!! Then I added some cheesecloth...and fabric buttons...and, of course, some gorgeous roses...and VOILA!!

Here's my card "recipe"...
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip & Baja Breeze (Stampin' Up)
DPs: Bo Bunny's "Snowfall" collection
Baja Breeze seam binding & buttons (SU)
Snowflake stamps: stash
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Caramel Creme, & Baja Breeze (SU)
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts

E21, 00, 000, 0000 (skin)
R20 (cheeks)
E25, 23, 21, YR20 (hair)
E34, 33, 31, 30 (skirt)

YG 99, 97, 95, 93, 91, W1 (shawl)
W0 & BG0000 (shadow)

Oh...and I lightly inked the cross-stitch fabric to minimize fraying...and then inked all of the cardstock edges...with Caramel Creme & Chocolate Chip. Here's a peek at the inside...

Okay, m''s time for you to head on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog HERE to check out the gorgeous creations by my talented Design Teamies!! Then, please join us this week at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog!
