Moxie Fab Tues Trigger- FLower Power & Carol's Ink Spot

Getting in on two challenges with this card! Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger has the color and flower inspiration with this beautiful pillow from Crate & Barrel .

Check it out here and play along:

Carol is having a BIG Ohhhh Birthday and she is sharing fun gift with us! Here are the deets on her giveaway challenge where you can wish her a Happy Birthday:

  1. Make a birthday card
  2. Incorporate a flower or more if you'd like
  3. Happy colors please - just nothing overly dark
  4. Finish the inside too
OK, well this card looked better in my head :(
I Love the colors from MFW's inspriration photo and thought I would incorporate the flowers with mat colors to match....I don't why or how this happens, but anywho, here's my card, the inside is for Carol's challenge!
