Moxie Fab & LRW64

DSCF6254

I needed a get-well card for a friend from church; at 52 years old, she suffered a massive stroke.  Her symptoms and recovery are very similar to Gabrielle Giffords’, so it has been heart-wrenching yet encouraging to see the progress she’s made.

I used the colors from the Neutrals Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World – what a mouthful!  Here are the colors:

which in my case are Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Marina Mist.  Perhaps Baja Breeze would have been a better choice….I love these colors together, so I may just make another!  I also used the Little Red Wagon challenge 64, to make a one-layer card.  I love the technique that my friend Nance used on this card, where she inked up an acrylic block and used it as a background, so for my CAS card, that’s what I did:

Using a 4 1/4” square of Very Vanilla textured cardstock, I inked up my blocks in the three colors, then stamped the larger floral image from Vintage Vogue over top.  I added the sentiment and narrow ribbon, rounded the opposite corners and my card was done.  I REALLY wanted to add some bling and glitter and layers, but I resisted!  CAS all the way!

Thanks for visiting!
