Moxie, Mama One layer LOL!

I am on a combo challenge roll LOL! I have some fun things to share this week and it might be a multi post few days. Todays is a multi combo challenge. I have been working on Kristina's two peas in a bucket August challenge. It was to make one layer cards. I am not sure if I am allowed to submit three, but there were three different techniques to try, so I went with it. The others are for later in the week.

I then got on Traveling Mama's blog and she has her challenge up again. She is also raising money for a school in Moroco, very cool. It was to use one of the photos as inspiration. You will se the photo I choose below. Then just as I was sitting down to make my card, I checked out the Moxie Fab site and saw TONS of challenges for Christmas cards. This one is for a stamping card challenge found here. Wham I now had a fun and quick one layer card idea.
Here is my card
I know, I know upon first blush this card has NOTHING to do with the photo, but stick with me it works (at least in my own little head LOL). Okay so one of the techniques for the one sheet wonder class was repetition and once I saw that picture all I could think about was the repeating bottles, so there was my inspiration. I then went with a Christmas theme. It might not seem all that Christmasie to you, but if you live in Illinois, it is always cold and usually snowing for Christmas.

On a side note everytime I see this saying I think of that fabulous song "Baby it's cold outside" and also of the movie ELF where it is in one of the scenes as well. Super fun if you ask me LOL! I am also stuck on bling for a while. One of the challenges on the Moxie Fab World blog was to use bling and now I can't seem to put it away. I sure like the finish it put on this fun one layer card.

It's a good life!
