Together We Can Do So Much


When I saw the Moxie Fab challenge to use 10 embellishments on a card my first thought was, "Jessi is going to rock this one!  She knows how to work some embellies!" (Can't wait to see your entries, Jessi!).  I figured I'd be skipping this one but then remembered some of the goodies I'd picked up on my recent trip.  I got a package of these cute little wooden peeps (Studio Calico) and knew that somewhere in my stash I had a "Better together" type of sentiment.  After flicking through all my Unity binders I actually found two such sentiments and decided to go with the Helen Keller quote.  Add some Lil' Inker rainbow dies and voila - a card with 10 embellishments!  I'm pretty happy with how it came out especially as it still feels CAS to me.  I'm also starting to see what all the Studio Calico fuss is about!  Gonna have to check out their products a little further...   



Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Kraft, Rustic Cream) Papertrey Ink, (Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Early Espresso Stampin' Up!

Jen, this is amazing! Awesome work! I can't believe you managed to make a CAS card with 10 embellishments. I haven't even considered this challenge... I might need to take another look! :-)

10 embellies? It totally scares me, but after seeing your fabulous design, maybe I can lol! Super clever card, I adore it Jen!

Well I can only add to the admiration of using 10 embellies on a CAS card (don't think I'd even consider this challenge) Brilliant card and sentiment Jen :0)
