Moxie Fab World Challenge- Fanatical about Botanical


Today I am playing along with the Fanatical About Botanical challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Click the link for deets...

I am going to be honest folks,  this challenge was a toughie for me.  I typically gravitate toward the clean and simple and fun and cute style, but I also have a *thing* for Basic Grey.  It was when I was digging through my stash that I found some die cuts and papers from the Curio collection and decided to give this challenge a whirl. So, here's my take:

Botanical Birthday

I trimmed and framed (K and Co) some of the die cut tags and pieces of patterned paper. On a piece of rustic cream cardstock, I stamped sheet music background in tea dye ink.  Unfortunately, that element doesn't show up too well in the photo.   The sentiment is from Botanical Silhouettes, Papertrey Ink's 2010 Anniversary set. I inked all the edges, punched a scallop border, tied a ribbon, added the pins and mounted the rustic cream cardstock to a natural card base.  Then I loaded the framed images with lots of adhesive (warning- these frames are heavy!) and adhered them to the card to make their own little gallery of botanical goodness.

Hope you enjoyed my take on botanical style.  There is still time to play along and add your link to the Moxie Fab World blog. You have until August 8 to post your projects.

Thank you so, so much for stopping by.  Have a fabulous day!
