Moxie Monday

Whenever Moxie Fab World had a challenge that includes ruffles, I can't resist giving it a try.  I loved this week's Tuesday Trigger challenge called Elegant Emerald.  Maybe it is the fashion designer in me, that recognizes that all those glorious ruffles are cut with a circular ruffle.  I love the color and the touches of gold, so I used this weeks Tuesday Trigger to work up a sympathy card I needed.  Below is the Moxie Fab World inspiration photo.  Notice I pulled out the butterfly on the model's eye and made it a feature in my card.  I cut the ruffles by cutting circles with my Creative Memories cutters with a center circle cut in the middle.  This leaves an O shape about an inch wide.  I clipped into the center and ran terrifically tacky tape along the inside circle.  I then placed the tape along a straight line on the card, and a ruffle is formed.
