MFW-TT Happy Happy Joy Joy and MIM #59

One card Two challenges:
For Moxie Fab World's- Tuesday Trigger this week the inspiration photo shows cookie tins with patterns that reminded me of this Martha Stewart "Heart and Flower" stamp set that hasn't seen any ink yet.

Haven't had the change to check out all the entries yet, but plan to visit some tonight here:
The colors and flowers on the bottom tin are what I was duplicating with my card.

My Card ~ click on the photo for more details

First I stamped the PTI White base card with the medium size image (the tulip and circles are all one stamp) to create my background and used my corner rounder on the top and bottom edges.
Next I used my computer on the yellow card stock to create my sentiment. I then ran my PTI Banner Border die over the sentiment (see the MIM video)
The next step was to tape the banner to the front, I added a brown satin ribbon to the side. The leaf was a bit of an afterthought, but it was just to plain and needed "something" (?) I was headed for some bling or pearls, however this card is supposed to be for a man...hope it's masculine enough :o)

Hope you had a great weekend, thanks so much for stopping by
