Let's Cheer up Cath Blog Hop!

I'm so glad I'm not too late on this one - I love Moxie Fab, and I felt sad for Cath that she wasn't able attend CHA, even as I enjoying watching the adventures of Flat Cath on FB this week. So when I realized that it's not too late to make her a card for the hop, I busted out a bit 'o glitter for Cath. Consider yourself hugged - hope you are feeling better soon!

I started with the Mojo Monday 226 Sketch, which is a round or square card this week. I went with square since I just finished an hour of cricut cutting as part of my scrapbook club prep. I embossed the Crystal Blue CS background with some big ol' dots, then gave the bottom half a glitter stripe treatment. You apply adhesive all over your base CS (A little xyron machine comes in handy for that. Tonight I used monoadhesive). Then adhere your CS stripes all across the base. Apply Prisma Glitter over the top and it'll fill in the stripes with glitter - hooray!

I layered some Cricut Art Philosophy diecuts for my focal point. Each layer got sponged with Amethyst and Crystal Blue inks. The center layer also got embossed with those big dots. And finally, the sentiment on top comes from the February Stamp of the Month, an adorably handy little set of sentiments.

I tied off a knot of Amethyst organdy ribbon, then used some white string to tie on a cute little acrylic Friends Charm and topped it off with a medium Sparkle.

I'm linking this card to the Heart2Heart Color Challenge Plus. And don't forget to check out the For Cath with Love blog hop and Moxie Fab for some really wonderful inspiration!
