Moxie Fab World Citrus Color Challenge

Here is a card I posted for the Moxie Fab World Citrus Color Challenge. I'm tellin' ya I am digging these color challenges! Here is the color inspiration straight from a Pottery Barn catalog:

The flowers were stamped originally for another card, but after changing directions on that card, I decided to start over. I kept the stamped image and was able to use it for this card. I love it when things just fall into place!

So, I've realized that I am in a papercrafting rut! As I scroll thru my recent posts, I notice a reoccurring theme...Papertrey Ink's Life stamp set and Nestabilities Label One die. So, I vow not to pick up either of those two products for awhile! I didn't even realize I was doing it... I just love them! Anyway, I have a couple of new challenges I'd like to try this week so hopefully I will get some stamping time in soon and I promise to use a different stamp set! {Lord knows I have plenty to choose from!!}

I also have a lot of family stuff to share in the next week or so. I still want to do a birthday post for my niece, Lauren. Her birthday was May 14th and we went to their lake house for the weekend. I also celebrated a birthday last weekend and we had our first official pool party and I got some great pictures. {Jen-Watch for those...you won't want to miss that!!! HA!}

'til then...

  1. Well, 'Life' is a Fabulous rut to be stuck in, if you ask me!! I love that set too! :> I also really like how you stamped them on the half circle and layered it onto the rectangular card! The twine adds a little something great to it too! :>

  2. That is a great set isn't it? All the greens on this look lovely! I just love the new PTI twine as well, perfect!

  3. Mel, your cards are great, but I am waiting for the birthday pictures. Love, Aunt Janet

  4. I love the colors and your card is darling.
