Stylish Cameo (CAS FTL #127, Moxie Fab World: The Appearance of Cameos Challenge)

Hey there! Sorry it's been a little while, I've been making cards for a big submission but I'm back now.  I have another one coming up in a few weeks, but I've vowed to manage my time better and do both my blog and the submission.  Thanks for hanging in there with me these past couple months when my postings have been a little bare.  I really appreciate all of your comments and your support.

On to tonight's's based on the sketch below from Clean and Simple Stamping and The Appearance of Cameos Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.  The beautiful silhouette cameo stamp is from Hero Arts and the sentiment is from A Muse.  The patterned paper is the Nook paper pad from Basic Grey, which I really love but don't use often.  I think I have a hoarding problem, but the first step is admitting it, right?  I used my Nestabilities beaded circles die and Marvy circle punch to surround the cameo image.  I used pop dots to attach it to the card to add just a little more interest.  The border punch is Martha Stewart, and one of my faves.  The ribbon is from A Muse and happens to be the exact same color as the patterned paper.  I added the Prima flower at the end to match the sketch and for just the right touch.  This isn't my typical style, but I really love how it turned out!  I hope you do too!  I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's weekend with someone special planned, just remember to sneak in a little crafting time too. :)  Happy Crafting!
