Tuesday Trigger and more...
Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a card I made for this week's Tuesday Trigger over on Moxie Fab World. We were to take inspiration from this Oh So Lovely photo:
Doesn't that just give you the warm fuzzies? I love this pic! Anyway... I also wanted to play in this week's challenge over at Joan's Gardens, and that challenge was to use blue, orange, a spring theme, a die cut and a circle. My circle is actually my hand made organza rose, which was my first attempt at these so go easy on me! :) I cut several circles of organza in bright pink, light pink and an orange/gold color. I used a candle to seal the edges and that causes the organza to curl up and it's amazing how you can start with a circle and end up with what really look like petals! I also used a big button from my stash that I have been hoarding. It is clear but half of it is orange and half is colorless. I really liked how it played with the orange tones in the card stock and flower. The ribbon is recycled from a gift I had received quite a while ago. I knew some day I'd use it!
I also incorporated some pink so I could play along with the Play Date Cafe Color challenge, which is orange, pink and blue. The photo there had two shades of blue and I went with the lighter.
My dp is from a treasured pack of Prima- Annalee. The sentiment is from Gina K (It's a Nina Brackett set called Fanciful Tags). I stamped it with Adirondak Latte and I used a Spellbinders Fancy Tag to cut it out. The base is Gina K leather. The punched edge is cut with a T Holtz die (Sizzix) and I used a scrap of MS cs for that. I meant to sew on this and totally forgot! LOL! Oh my...
