Moxie Fab "Gradient is Radiant" Challenge

I think I found my mojo...and I think it is PINK. For a girl who grew up hating pink, I sure do love it now. I find it to be the EASIEST color for me to work with. Go figure.

They are having a fun challenge over at Moxie Fab World and the focus is all about gradients! You know, I never thought to incorporate a gradient into my cards. I mean, I use gradients everyday, everyday in design, literally...but it never even crosses my mind when I craft.

So when I saw this challenge, I just knew I had to try it. I decided to mimic a little girls skirt, you know, all those layers of ruffles in yummy pinks. Ha! I even crumbled the pieces of cardstock before adhereing for a little movement. Honestly, when I sat down to sketch it, I started with the bottom and the rest just fell into place from there. A little backround stamping on the top, some ribbon, a button, and faux stitching to finish it off.

So, was there something you hated as a child, and now can't get enough of?

Thanks for looking!
