Gardient Challenge

It is a Moxie Fab World, well this week for sure. Have you been over to that fabulous blog yet? It really is quite fun. I had to make another card for the Gradient challenge since it really has me thinking differently.
It is hard to see, but at the bottom, I used some fun greens for this card. I actually got the idea from the colorbox chalk q ink sitting on my desk. They have fun gradients of color, so it really worked well. I finally got to a local antique store and picked up some more piano sheet music and an old book that I wouldn't mind making fun cards with.

I adore music, so using sheet music is so much fun for me. I loved pairing it with the sentiment as well. The button elements are a wonderful accent and I think it helped to tie in the colors.

It's a good life!
