Moxie Fab Gallon/Quart/Pint Challenge

Here's one I created for the Moxie Fab Gallon/Quart/Pint Challenge.  I bought this ribbon at a fair recently, but had no particular project in mind (other than a burning need to get out the acetate again).  Then when I read up on the concept of designing in thirds, I knew this ribbon was my starting point - with the colours apricot, brown and pink being my 'thirds'. 
Brown is a favorite of mine, as it can pull so many colours together, so that is my Gallon (you could argue it's a neutral and therefore doesn't count as one of the thirds, but in this case I think the neutral is white and the brown becomes a feature).  I chose to bring out the apricot as my Quart (I get a bit tired of pink with two little girls under 5!) so I added a strip of apricot, stitched to help tie in the fabric texture of the ribbon with the card. The pink then becomes my Pint.


  1. I really like how you've pulled the colors out from the ribbon, what a fine card!

  2. Great take on the challenge! LoVe that ribbon!
