Moxie Fab World - Textured to Perfection

The Moxie Fab World - Textured to Perfection challenge will be closing in about an hour.  This is about as close as I've ever cut it in submitting to a challenge but I had a "painty, messy good time" last night that was just itching to be made into a card.
Gobs of texture on this baby - lots of layers of paint, sprays, oil pastels, gel medium with glass beads, scribbling, etc.
Made a big mess on my table too - please note the most important ingredient for successful crafting - Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.
I covered an entire watercolor sheet and planned to cut it into pieces for using in several projects.
More texture and finishing touches are added with a muse|studio supplies - the Harlequin/Woodgrain Impression Plate and the sentiment (Marvelous Marigolds) is stamped on a panel cut with a Labels die and enhanced with a black twinkle sticker.  BTW - I also like the texture added on the black layer panel - you too can have that shreddy look when you completely kill your cutting blade by slicing through textured watercolor paper with glass beads on it - 'doh!!

I'll be honest, I was kind of sad to see that this didn't win for the challenge. It is so beautiful and there is so many depths and layers of texture on this card. I love it.
