Spectacular Spectacles Challenge - Moxy Fab World

Good morning all! I'm so excited to show you this card I made for the Moxy Fab World's Spectacular Spectacles Challenge. The challenge is to use spectacles (eyeglasses) in an innovative way.  I have been suffering from a bout of insomnia the last couple of nights, and I came up with this idea while lying awake in bed at 3am. (Might as well use that time productively! LOL!)

and the inside of the card:

I paper pieced the alligator, heat embossed the "L8R", then stamped and cut out the specs with an exacto knife. I used three different stamp sets from Paper Smooches: Zoo Crew (alligator, leaf and L8R); Get Outta Town (glasses); and Metropolis (miss you). The C U stickers are from Colorbok, card stock is Bazzill and The Paper Company, and the green dot paper is from DCWV.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your Friday is fabulous!

See you later alligator!

Chris ☺
