Get Sketchy and Grey is the New Black!

 Back to school today! Actually kinda glad, was getting a little stir crazy! And I would like to get out before June! I have a card for you today that is for TWO challenges! First off, Friday's Get Sketchy Challenge #69.
And Grey is the New Black on Moxie Fab World which I was particularly inspired by this 
So are you ready for the card!?!??!?!
 Here ya go! Was it worth waiting for? I embossed Smokey Shadow cs from PTI with Kassies Brocade using my Big Kick (yes I have a big kick) and then paired it with Cosmo Cricket's Everafter!!! PERFECTION! The sentiment is a cardstock sticker from the same collection as well as the two border strips. I added some twine to it for contrast then decided instead of a premade flower I would attempt to make one of Tim Holtz's tissue tape flowers! First I inked the tissue tape with Mustard Seed distress ink - which I then had to blot off cause it was a little bright! Then I made the flower following the simple you tube video!!!! So easy and I am pleased with the results! I added a big ole' bit of bling to the middle and adhered it to my card!
Here is a close up of the tissue tape flower
The Get Sketchy challenge ends tonight but if you hurry there is still time! And the Moxie Fab Challenge is open until January 24th so you have plenty of time to play!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
