Mojo 121 & ColorQ 15

Boy it's been so nice having the last two days off to do some laundry and make some cards! I've even started to organize my stamp area a bit (... a really small bit!!). I love combining challenges as you may or may not know so here's a card with Mojo Monday 121's layout and ColorQ #15's colors. You can't really see the colors of the background but I stamped Belle Toile in Versamark and cotton swabbed on some Certainly Celery and Barely Banana pastels. The big 'F' was also stamped in craft Pumpkin Pie and embossed some clear powder. 
Now a little story that has nothing to do with cards. Yesterday Jamie and I were eating supper and he swallowed a little too fast. He ended up choking a bit and snorted some food up the wrong tube! So he blows his nose and he blew out a HUGE HUGE HUGE piece of lettuce!! It was probably like 2" long and 1/4" wide. It was sick sick sick but oh so funny at the same time!! I've never blown any food THAT big outta my nose before. All he had to say after he looked into his tissue was "Man that felt weird."

Beautiful card Sandy. It is really elegant. The stamping shows up perfectly and the little bling is the perfect touch.
