Die Cuts with Art Philosophy

I came across the Moxie Fab blog a few days ago and they had several card sketch challenges - 4 as a matter of fact!   Each sketch looked fun and I wanted to give them all a try when I had a chance.  I got busy and totally forgot until I saw a card created by my scrappin' bud Mandy. (See her cards over at Scrappity-Doo-Da).  So tonight I sat down and re-visited Moxie Fab and checked out a few other challenges.  Over at the Heart 2 Heart, their challenge was to create something with die-cuts.  My first Moxie Fab sketch goes well with the H2H challenge so I'm submitting them for both!

Here is the Moxie Fab sketch: "Shaped Sketch Challenge"

And my card:

I used the Arts Philosophy cricut cartridge to cut practically EVERYTHING for this card including the card itself!  I even cut the shaped flowers that I stamped with the Hooray Bouquet stamp.  (The exact measurements are included with the stamp set for perfect cutting)

Now, hop on over to Heart 2 Heart and check out the other die-cut artwork!  Then hurry over to Moxie Fab.  You'll see lots of great art on both blogs!  I'm headed back to my scrap room to start work on the other Moxie Fab sketches!  Following is my complete recipe for the card!
