Moxie Fab - Start to Finish!

I finished a card this morning for the Moxie Fab World's "Start to Finish" challenge. Cath has challenged us to complete a card - finish the inside AND the outside! I quickly jumped on this challenge, as I really need to start doing a little more to the insides of my cards - thanks Cath!!!

I am also entering this in the Mojo Monday weekly challenge -
Here is Mary's wonderful sketch:

Silly me, try as I might, I couldn't get the sentiment to photograph well. If I tried to adjust contrast or brightness, it was affecting the entire card, AND... I realized after I posted the photo that my thumb had mashed the ribbon! Lol...

Here is my card:

and the inside...!!! (did I mention thanks Cath???)



What's in it:
DCWV Garden Party Stack, Stampin'Up's Tempting Turquoise Ink, Kaiser Crafts Pearls, and a Verve 'Plain Jane' sentiment.




I hope your day was filled with blessings - I was lucky enough to spend part of mine (the before taxes part...lol) with my BSFF Shirley, and we got in some time in her girl-cave playing with some new TAC images!




Big hugs - see you tomorrow!

Food for thought: Why is the man that invests all of my money called a 'broker'???

Wow, the inside is as nice as the outside! :) I seem to always be rushing and so that's the last thing I think of is to decorate the inside but it looks wonderful! Great challenge. :)

Those butterflies are spectacular! Love the entire card. TFS, now my goal is to complete an inside of a card with something other than a sentiment.

Patti said...
