Moxie Fab - Classy and Elegant

I made this card for the Moxie Fab World Classy & Elegant Challenge. To me, elegant is a clean and simple color palette (black, red, cream) with strong images (diecut bird) and a dash of decoration (black silk ribbon and black crystal stickers).
The diecut is my new Tim Holtz Sizzix die - I like the contrast against some old book paper cut on an angle (the upside down part was an accident but in reality I like that better - go figure).
The notecard is made from PTI cream cardstock and then covered on the front with Basic Grey Basics - Manila paper. The sentiment and crystals are from A Muse.
I thought I'd show you a fun little project I made yesterday - These are for Jen - They are clothes dividers for the baby's closet to keep his clothes grouped together by size. My organizing side would have been so happy to have those when my boys were little!! I snagged some free lineart and made these up pretty quickly on Photoshop Elements. The white cardstock is 3 3/8" x 5 3/8" - the kraft is cut 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" and the hanging hole was cut with a Nestabilities die at 1 7/8". It is drippy and rainy today but Caleb is happy because he's been begging for a fish for a while now and when we went to get Lily's nails ground we picked up a new Betta - Caleb has named him Cooper and talks to him every time he passes through the kitchen - sweet!
