GS#76 - Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger: Flower Power!

This card was inspired by this week's Tuesday Trigger from the Moxie Fab blog - That is a super cool, funky fresh pillow but a bit bright for my "taupe loving" self!  Dug out my SU! Fifth Avenue Florals to stamp the flowers, colored them in with Copic markers and then followed the layout from Get Sketchy.
Everything was going fine (once I got the big 14 year old to stop kicking the table laughing while I was attempting to color - really though, I can't blame him - we were watching Jimmy Fallon and that show cracks us up - we tape it every night) until I went to cut my fabulously colored panel into fourths, then disaster struck!!  One half of 3" is 1 1/2" NOT 1 1/4" - AARRGGHH!!  What a stupid mistake!
All was not lost - I quickly cut the other side "wrong" and ended up with some Moxie Fab funky fresh lines on my squares that my husband complimented me on but you and I both know were a desperate attempt to "fix it - just fix it"!!
