Dance..

No, not a snow dance. We already did that..lol. This time it's dancing in the rain when times get tough. That's such a hard concept, isn't it? Learning to be happy and count your blessings in the midst of chaos. I know it is for me.

The card I made today..can I just say I love it? I had the idea rolling around in my head for hours before I actually stamped it. I really like how it came out.It's simple and all, but it was a fun card!  I used the Moxie Fab challenge for Monday of this week which was to use these colors:


Each day this week, they will have a new color combo. I'm hoping to try them all..you should also! Click the pic for more info:




So, here is my card:




Can you see the embossed musical background on the second black layer?  It's so cool looking in real life and goes really well with the sentiment on the white circle.

Ok, well that's all from me today. I hope you'll play along with Moxie Fab this week. Have a wonderful day!

Stunning, Keva! I love the way the white circle overhangs the edge. It's a nice balance to the bow. You totally rocked a combo that left me stumped.
