The Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.

I've tried for several weeks to make a card for this challenge, but don't ever seem to get it posted in time.  I'm squeeking in just under the wire this time. =)

I made the card base from SU! River Rock and embossed it with the SU! Framed Tulips Emboss Folder.  I cut a Nestabilities Label Fourteen and embossed the edge, then stamped the sentiment with a combo of Crumb Cake (stamped off) and then Ruby Red (retired), and inked the edges of the label with the Crumb Cake. The stamp and inks are all SU!.  The Ruby Red flowers are cut with the Sizzix Flower Daisies #2.  I pleated the SU! So Saffron grosgrain ribbon and stitched the pleats down to make it easier to work with.  Then I covered the stitching with some satin picot ribbon from my friend's stash.  The yellow flowers are from my stash and the pearls are SU!.

Whew!!  Got that done!  Now off to the Moxie Fab blog to link up! =))


  1. It's a beautifully inspired card! Happy Easter to you.

  2. Pretty, pretty card... love the flowers... so bold and beautiful. Lovely sentiment.
