Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: I've a Notion

Dear Reader,

It was one of those days when a 20 minute chore blossomed into a 2 hour project.  I don't mean the card I am going to share with you presently...I was able to fit working on it today in fits and starts.  It began with an image from Moxie Fab World for it's Tuesday Trigger: I've a Notion:

I am digging the peach/melon/orange and grey color scheme and I love the notions.   I thought why not make a card with the colors and the design of this picture?  It may be pretty literal, but I had fun.

I got out my Label Basics stamp set from Papertrey Ink again as this card HERE sparked the basis of this card only this time around I was very specific about where I placed the shapes and also paper pieced.  I searched my collection of 6x6 paper pads for various patterned papers that worked for the color scheme and sort of followed the picture for placement.  I added a piece of lace dyed with very watered down Mister Huey's for a peach color, baker's twine, three grey buttons and a little silver embossed vellum square for the sentiment.

I hope you enjoyed tonight's card!  Have a great beginning to your week.

Happy Creating,

Your take on the trigger is very interesting, and it looks Gorgeous!! At first sight, it almost looks like the front of a Sweets shop! I won't be surprised if this is a winner!

What a great idea, you incorporated so much into this card. I like the Papertrey stamp, that is one company that I don't own any stamps from. Thanks for becoming my newest follower, I'll follow you, too. Barb

How fun that you tackled the actual LAYOUT of the notions on your card! Would never have thought of that, but so cool!
