Spectacular Spectacles

Hello friends! How about a little Friday challenge?

A Moxie Fab Challenge, that is!

I decided to make a card for the Spectacular Spectacles Challenge at the Moxie Fab blog. Here's my take on this challenge!

As a spectacle-dependent lass myself, I wanted everyone to know that it is, indeed, hip to be square!

I knew that I wanted to use my Cosmo Cricket papers (The Boyfriend) for this card. But how to make the stack of books? Easy!

I chose one of the sheets of striped paper, very carefully cut a few stripes apart, and very carefully stamped the words from the sentiment ( My Favorite Things Pure Innocence Book In Hand stamp set) onto those colored stripes. I stacked them on top of each other in a staggered fashion, and voila!

I had to add a little flair to those glasses with some clear Stickles!

A square card with square images that is anything but...square.

Thanks for visiting the cafe today!

Would you like to participate in this challenge, too? Hop over to the Moxie Fab Blog for more info!
