Moxie Fab World: The Paper Scraps Challenge ~ Color Wheel Birthday

Hey y'all!!  Just got back last night from a week in Atlanta and I feel like I've been off the planet!  Hubby and I had a blast with the boys, but I'm definitely laying low today:)  One of the many stops on this trip was to the High Museum of Art.  Below is a pic of the boys with some of the awesome large scale modern pieces.  {The boys will tell you that I'm a big fan of unposed pics and I'm forever telling them to "act natural", lol!}  
Maybe this is what I had on my mind when I went to work on another card for the Moxie Fab World Paper Scraps Challenge!  As you can see, I used the inlay technique again (the die cut piece is flush with the frame).  The vellum strip is just slightly bowed off of the card.  I didn't want to cover up the colors too much, so the letters are only attached to the vellum at the bottom of each letter.      
I'm so happy with the cheery feel of this card!  Now, I'm off to catch up on all the goodies in my Google reader.  You all have been busy!!  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Easter weekend!
{Aloha, jj}
