Paper Smooches and Moxie Fab

I never throw anything out, that could be potentially useful...... Probably years ago I got some flowers bouquets wrapped in sheer fabric - one yellow, one orange and I kept that for future use - today is the day! And I do take recycling seriously!

I cut the fabric in triangular strips and layered the strips overlapping onto the card stock. Before that I stamped my sentiment both from the Paper Smooches - Sentiment sampler set. 

I tied a bow around it, underlayed the white center panel with orange strips of paper and mounted the whole thing on a white card with foam spacers. Some enamel dots finish it off!

A close-up picture and below the inspiration photo from the Paper Smooches Sheer and clear challenge:

And the Moxie Fab Birthday card challenge is still ongoing and I will link this card up with it as well.


And now as promised, some more Calgary pics - this time modern art in this wonderful city:

The mesh head and the running horses are my favorites - just amazing! I hope you love it as much as I do! I wish you all a wonderful weekend and thank you for your plentiful, nice and encouraging comments - I love them all!

Hey Cornelia!
Da bin ich ja froh, daß auch Andere alles potentiell Brauchbare aufbewahren müssen... ;-) Deine Karte ist wieder der Hammer!!
Ich war viel zu lange nicht hier zum Gucken - Dein Blogdesign ist ja ganz neu und frisch! Gefällt mir sehr gut.
Und Deine Fotos sind auch grandios.
Hoffe, es geht Dir gut und schicke liebe Grüße über den großen Teich,
