I am SO very excited to share a new addition to the Moka Collection from Taylored Angel Moka!  Each Moka set comes on a 3" x 5.5" full color sturdy storage panel and they are all designed and illustrated by Nancy McKinney!  Angel Moka has a total of 5 stamps...but wait!  There are TWO other Mokas being released too!  Moka Jane and Moka Jesse!  I will have samples with both coming up soon my blog!   They are SO cute!

For my card today, I started by stamping Moka Angel in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and I colored her with Copic Markers.  I cut out and embossed the panel with Oval Nestabilities.  All of the patterned paper is the beautiful Uncommon Collection from Authentique, and I added a border with the Medium Scallop Border Die.

I added TONS of machine stitching, as well as a super big bow of grey seam binding.  Some Kaisercraft Pearls were added to the top, and I cut a little sentiment flag for the "With Love" sentiment.  This card is also for my Dare to Get Dirty Challenge, DTGD11Kharmagirl, which you can access if you are an SCS Fan Club Member!

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:
