Trying for Moxie Fab-ness

Have you been playing along in the Moxie Fab World Color Inspiration challenges? I've been trying to do my best, and it's hard work! The competition is amazing out there! The card above is for the Monochromatic challenge. My dark pink might be too bright, though. What do you think? Stamps are MFT, and so is the rick rack die. I had the flower in my stash and the tag is from a set of Cuttlebug dies. The image is paper pieced with flower dp from SU! and dotted paper from my pile.

The next card is for the Neutrals challenge, and the color combo made me want to make a masculine card. I have a few masculine birthday cards to make in the next few days and we just found out that our old neighbor had heart surgery last week, so there's a get well card on the list, too! I embossed the blue layer (Buckaroo Blue) with the Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug folder, then distressed the edges. The image panels are also distressed around the edges, and inked with Buckaroo Blue. Image is from Lovely As A Tree (in case you didn't recognize it!). I LOVE that set so much! The tag is from Technique Tuesday, and is inked with Sahara Sand. Sentiment is CHF. I ran the twine across the edge of the ink pad to give it some color, too.

I hope you are having a good weekend. Justin was playing his DS when we got up this morning, so I asked him what time he got up and started playing. He said 3am. I seriously hope he read the clock wrong, although based on his behavior right now, it sounds about right. He gets stubbornness from both of us and we have quite a time when he gets cranky. Ah, the fun of parenting sometimes!

I'm off to try a couple more color challenges. Thanks for looking!
