Paint Chip Card...Inspired By Marcy!

 Hello, dear friends! I don't know about you, but I have been having a sense of emptiness since Cath stepped down from Moxie Fab World. I miss Moxie Fabber of the week, I miss Tuesday Trigger and I miss the daily posts of enchanting photos...etc. I never realized how that had an impact on me until now. The last few days have been a bit of blah in my craft room. It was not until I stumbled into my friend Marcy's post (see here).  I finally have a little pick-me-up!
Thank you, Marcy, for making me feel the LOVE! With Marcy's paint chip card, I was inspired to make another one!
Here is Marcy's paint chip card with gold embossing.
Isn't it sophisticated and gorgeous? Here is my take:warm wishes
 I embossed the snowflakes in gold and white and then, I stamped in white Colorbox chalk ink. With the warm color palette, this card came together very easily.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love how Marcy was inspired by your cards, V! Her card is so beautiful and so is yours! The ombre effect with the paint chips is fab and your gold and white snowflakes look perfect! Love how we all inspire each other! ♥

OH EM GEE!!!!!!!!!!! My jaw is in my lap, V!!! I am swooning over the brown color palette and I see what you did - you left the white space on the strips. That looks so much better! And your embossing is my most favorite technique. What a gorgeous card set up in a beautiful photo! I couldn't be happier that I gave YOU some mojo to create this amazing creation! XOXO

Oh my goodness! I clicked on the post because I saw Ryan (of course wink, wink) but then I saw Marcy's card (just gorgeous) and then I saw your card which seriously is stunning! Just stunning!

I totally agree with you in regards to Cath being gone too. It's been super sad and lonley.
