Moxie Fab World Card Style Clean and Graphic Challenge

Do you ever have that sinking feeling that something might be wrong the second you wake up in the morning? I hope you don't have that feeling often if you know what I'm talking about. I checked my cell phone and the time display said 8:20 AM. (insert colorful explicatives) I usually LEAVE the house by 8 AM. I hate oversleeping. ::grumble::

Huh. Interesting. No Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge today, but thankfully, the peeps over there didn't leave us challenge-less today. They, instead, had a Card Style Clean and Graphic Challenge: "the clean and graphic style is characterized by the utilization of white space, clean lines, and simple treatment of text. It is no-frills, bare-boned, modern, and hip." Ooo, this IS a challenge, especially the no-frills part. Anyway, this is what I came up with. I went against my creative instincts to reach for the rhinestones or ribbon, but I'm overall pleased with outcome. I think I need to brush up on my faux stitching skills because I don't think all of the stitches are even, but hey, practice makes perfect, right?

I encourage you to put your thinking caps on and create a "clean and graphic" card. Don't forget to share it on the Moxie Fab World site. There will be goodies for winners: "Two winning entries will be shown on this blog on Wednesday, August 4 and will receive an "I'm Moxie Fab" challenge winner button as well as a copy of Card Style magazine."
