Have you seen my.............MOJO

Perhaps it isn't exactly my MOO that is missing but more so the hours in the day?? Everytime I return from a trip stateside, it takes forever to get my body clock back in alignment with whatever continent I happen to be on. Coming back home and being on Spring Break from school DID NOT HELP!! I mean seriously, why can't I stay up until 4am and then sleep until noon?? OOOOOO because I have to go back to work IN THE MORNING? Stinks to be me.......
Here is a closer look at today's card so that you can see the details in my "BOOK". Doesn't that Nestie Die just scream BOOK? I would be interested to know what other ideas some of you have for Spellbinders (Nestabilities Die #7)...........

How would you like to save 15% off of your entire purchase over at ABC Toys & Crafts (sale items excluded)...... I also heard that Julie, the store owner is going to be listing the NEWEST MARTHA STEWART PUNCHES this week.
(yep that's the code to save 15% at ABC Toys & Crafts)

..........Challenges I used...........
Stamp Something: Layers (layered papers, embellishments & even stamps)
Pile It On: Spring is Finally Here
The Crazy Challenge: Don't Call Me Flat (first I love the name. The idea is to bring your artwork up off of the page (3-d'ish)
Creative Belli Challenge: Die Cut Shapes (I created a book)
Paper Makeup Challenge: Use 5 Embellishments (2 brads, 1 chipboard, 1 flower, 1 ribbon)
Scrappy Frog Challenge: Pick 3 (I chose: die cut, no coloring & sponging)

...........Supplies I used............
Stamps: Penny Black (Nature Flowers), Stampin Up (french script)
Ink: Tsukineko (dew drops Momento), Stampin Up (always artichoke)
Cardstock: Paper Trey Ink (sweet blush), Stampin Up (naturals)
Patterned Paper: K&Co. (Bailey)
Tools: Spellbinders (Nestabilities die #7)
Misc: Making Memories (metallic brads), K&Co.(chipboard), Delta (light pink acrylic paint), satin ribbon from Italy, Prima flower, foam squares

Hi Justine, thanks for taking a peek at my blog and your lovely comment. The stamp I used was from Whiff of Joy but of course I also have alot of uninked SK stamps as well. I'm a bit of a collector in that department but suppose papers are a weakness to. Infact I collect all kinds of card stash.
Your card is gorgeous. I'd of never thought of using the nesties this way. Off to follow your blog now!
