Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger Girly & Gutsy


Today the whole family was in lockdown mode due to Hurricane Irene.  Not the best of circumstances, but on the upside, it did give us lots of quiet family time.  All of us cozied up in the basement and I got to spend some time with my kids AND make a card!  Today's card inspiration is the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Girly & Gutsy!  
I think my card's got the the girly, but not sure if I captured enough of the gusty. I tried to create a card that was feminine and modern, but not frou frou.  So I picked this modern doily stamp with spindles that remind me of the detail of the Warren Platner chairs in the inspiration pic.  The colors were added with copics to bring out the flowery feel.     
I chose a small damask design for the center of the doily and added a little jewel in the center (colored pink to match).  The finishing touch are the small rhinestones around the edge.
  

Now all that's left is to clean up the basement!  Hope everyone out there is staying safe!  Thanks for looking!
