Squiggle Fly Challenge #19 and MSB update

It's Monday and that means another challenge over at Squigglefly. The challenge this week is to make a card with a Mellow Moss background, use no embellishments AND make your card 5x5. When I wrote down the challenge, I completely missed the size requirment ~ oops ~ and the ironic thing is, that for the most part, my cards are usually square (although I prefer 5 1/2 x 5 1/2). But no, this time I had to go and make a "normal size" card.

I have come to the conclusion that I need to invest in some more nesties one of these days. I only have two sets ~ the rectangles and scalloped rectangles which don't give me a whole lot of options ~ especially when I want circles and ovals on my card. Now only if I didn't have all these other bills.....

Come and play along with our challenge this week ~ we'd love to see what you come up with!

Please check back in with me on Friday as I will be taking part in the Squigglefly blog hop. We will be showcasing the new images being released on Saturday the 19th and you will also have a chance to win a grand prize that includes all 13 new images. Providing all goes well, I may even have a sneek peek or 2 for you before then....

This card also qualifies for the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz - Patchwork
Crafty Creations - Embossing
Cute Card Thursday - "Strawberry Mint Julep" - pink and green
My Time to Craft - "Polka Dot Party" - anything with dots or spots

Just a quick update on Modern Sugar Blvd. We were taking a little break, and will be back in full force with some brand new DT members! I am currently working with two new images that are scheduled to be released on Sunday and will be able to show these to you later in the week.

Jodi, this is great! I'm kind of stumped by these colors, and no embellishments?! I don't know why you need nestabilities when you've got the punches. The scroll flourishes add so much to your layout!
