a card for Moxie Fab World 'Clean and Graphic Challenge'

 August has just begun! It's burning hot today here. How are you doing?
 Finished a card for the Card Style Clean and Graphic Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
 I happened to know it this morning, when I cleaned up my bookmarks of my internet browser. And I said to myself, 'this was it!' that a few of my friends made lovely cards and shared it/them with us on each blog or Flickr photostream. Oh, my! I'm really slow...
Probably, this is my first entry to the Moxie Fab World. (I added their blog in my bookmarks, since there were some articles or challenges I had interests, I guess.)

Here is my card, 'Thinking of you & Smiling'.
Though I thought whether I should submit this or not for quite a while after finished, I decided to join. Hope this qualifies the requirement.

The flower at the center is a little 3-dimensional. I took a paper-piecing technique slightly off-set.
*I removed the three stems - filled in it with Copic multiliner - from the original stamp image for this card. The black color for this background was also filled with the multiliner.
