Moxie Fab Olympics of Stamping Challenge: Birthday

Recently, one of my sweet readers, Jenn, emailed me about the Moxie Fab Olympics of Stamping Challenge. It sounds like a lot of fun, and since one of my goals this year is to get published, I thought this was a great opportunity. Here is my card for the Birthday category:



One of my favorite Papertrey Ink color combinations is Pure Poppy and Berry Sorbet. I just love how they look together. And I discovered that Smokey Shadow is a nice compliment to them both. I used it on the sentiment and for the antennae of the butterflies. My Little Lady set came in handy for that! I really love adding paper piercing to my cards, especially when butterflies are present:


So what do you think, Jenn? Thanks for the heads up; I think I'm hooked on this challenge! I've already made another card for a different category and I may keep going! I mean, I'll never get into the real Olympics, so I might as well participate in this one, right?!? Hope you are having a great weekend! I'll be back very soon, so don't go far!
