Cathy found another beautiful inspiration photo for this weeks' Tuesday Trigger challenge over at Moxie Fab World.
My inspiration came from the two colours and also the embossing and gingham design. I came up with a very clean and simple card and actually put a fabric flower on my card! It's fairly unheard of for me to put anything kind of bulky items on any card, but this was a smallish flower and I think it turned out really pretty!
The designer paper comes from a 6X6 MME pack called "Everyday Flair". It has some beautiful designs and Spring like colours in that pack.
The paper flower is made using a PTI flower die. It's in 3 layers which have all been dry embossed with a cuttlebug embossing folder and then softly inked around the edges with some Tumbled Glass distress ink. Then I was thinking about how I wanted to embellish the centre and I went from bakers twine, to gems and finally settled on this pretty lacy flower with a gem centre from Recollections. I feel that it softness the entire card.
The sentiment is from PTI's "Simple Sentiment" set, I partially inked up the sentiment as I did not want the remainder of the words that were on it.
And lastly, but not least, Happy Easter to all!
