A Moxie Fab Inside and Out Complete Valentine!

Hi!

So here's the card I made for this Moxie Fab Challenge! The challenge was to make a card that wasn't just amazing on the outside, or front of the card, but to make it exciting when it was opened too! There are times when I choose to do this on my own, but it does seem that I get so caught up in just pumping out the fronts of cards, that I forget to make the insides exciting too!

So I first stamped this image, and it came out like you see it here on the card; it didn't stamp completely, so I tried again, and got the image perfect, but then I decided that I kinda liked it not complete.....it kinda had a bit of a vintage or rough feel to it, so I decided to go with the original one I stamped. I think it gives it more texture!

For the inside, I placed the sentiment, and added a big happy red glittered heart! I thought it was cute since I had a little outlined heart glittered on the front.
I had stopped at Michael's yesterday to pick up some glitter and I found this tree heart stamp there, thought it was cute so I picked it up! Kind of a pain to have to ink up a stamp with pens, but I think the result is well worth it!

Thanks for stopping by......hope y'all have a Fabulous Day!
