I want to ride my Bike in a Moxie Fab Off the Wall Craftiness World!



The Moxie Fab Challenge is all about bicycles being fun and summary!  The card just came together perfect with Kim's OTWC Color Challenge, so I was able to cover both these fabulous challenges in one. The colors for the OTWC Challenge #13 need to be similar to PTI's, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, and Sweet Blush and white and black are also allowed.  Kim's inspiration photo is above. 

My inspiration started with My Better Home and Garden Magazine I got in the mail last week. I just loved those place mats on the cover and it definitely felt very summary to me. I thought the Moroccan Motifs Impression Plate from Papertrey Ink would make the perfect background for this card. I rubbed Raspberry Fizz ink over the top to pop out the impression which was to give it a rustic look.

The bicycle is just the cutest fun little thing, but boy was it tedious to piece together! :). My sentiment states: "Live like you mean it" For me, it was the perfect statement for this card. We all should Live like we mean it because we don't know what tomorrow brings. It also reminds me of summers when I was little riding my bike  with streamers. I would peddle and peddle like I meant it...like I had somewhere to go even if it was just to the end of our road. It seems just like yesterday. Ahh those childhood summers we look back on fondly.

Thanks for taking look!  Happy Summer and Happy crafting!
Blessings!
