Moxie Fab World Signs Of Peace Challenge

Everything old is new again...... that's what they say. I grew up in the burn you're bra, day-glo, love bead, moccasin era. That's when taking a trip didn't mean going to Grandma's. However, it was a time of kinder people. Thus, the peace sign was in fashion.

Moxie Fab World has challenged us to make a creation with a peace sign. Here is what I came up with, using odds and ends from my stash. Flower Power was another one of those great expressions so I needed to include it too. I just happened to have a die cut sticker from Sticko. Then I found the tie dyed trim and I was really feeling the colors.
I would also like to enter this card for Speedy the Cat's Friend's Challenge #15- Think Flowers.

As a follow up, My bedroom walls were bright orange with day-glo posters and a black light. Ahhhhh! I don't know how I slept!

FAR OUT MAN!!!!!! I'm trying to visualize that bedroom of yours from yesteryear! I was never allowed to express myself quite so much! LOL Those really were the days, but I grew up more in the 50s with Elvis, black leather, DA haircuts and rock n roll! They were ALL better times for all of us! Your card really takes me back, and I think it's great! I love the colorful peace sign and flowers!
