Moxie Fab World: Tuesday Trigger: Garden Glory

Hi bloggies! Update on Cirque du Soleil: Zarkana...it was FANTASTIC! Absolutely breathtaking and entertaining! Did I also mention that I used a Groupon code to score 56% off on the tickets?! The city was very busy, there was a street fair on 6th Ave. A lot of people were shopping and eating on the streets. It was a great weekend. :)

I found the Tuesday Trigger inspirational photo over at Moxie Fab World today. Have you seen it?! If you haven't, you HAVE to. It's stunning! I was so inspired to make a card right after I saw it. I just got my Papertrey Ink happy mail today, unfortunately there was one die that was missing from it. I guess it was back ordered...so I have to wait for it to get here. But the rest of the package was there and I had new toys to play with! :)

Here's that gorgeous Tuesday Trigger inspirational photo from Tuesday Trigger: Garden Glory.

Here's my take on the picture. I loved the color combination! It grabbed my attention as soon as I saw it, and I HAD to get inky!!!

I stamped Harvest Berries in green to make a background panel. I had more ideas for it using the dies but it didn't arrive with my package. So it's nice and flat here. I also stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the center. I inked the edges with Antique Linen, because it just wouldn't be my card if I didn't! lol! 

I also layered patterned papers to make a band for the lower portion of my card. And I also added some lace in an attempt to make it feel softer and more feminine. Then I stamped this gorgeous Mehndi Medallion, die cut it, and layered it with a brad on top of the band. 

I love this trigger so much! I think I'll be making another one with it in a short while! :) Enjoy your week! And I hope you liked my card today.
