Tuesday Trigger

Good Morning all and a Happy Saturday.

I`m really enjoying doing these challenges that I`ve recently got into. When I found this one  fromMoxie Fab World I was so excited. This one is the Tuesday Trigger and this is the picture we were asked to take our inspiration from.
I love it and couldn`t wait to get started. I knew exactly where to get my papers from and had loads of the right coloured flowers.

Ha! Why do I do it to myself? I loaded up the Pink Petticoat Dots, chose the Pistachio and set it to print. Now I knew my ink was running low but, you know me, I always try to squeeze the last little bit out. My beautiful Pistachio paper came out a mucky grey colour !!!
Not to be out done I had a good rummage in my   " spare paper " box and found half a sheet of  the perfect paper. The dots aren`t as big as I would have liked but, hey beggers can`t be choosers.
Then I set about making the card. I got all the ingrediants together, set it all out, went to get my "perfect" green brads for the centre of the flowers... not enough of them....Have you ever felt like screaming?
In the end I compromised and improvised and came up with this.

I used cream for the base card as it seemed to go better with the green.
The spotty paper is by Pink Petticoat and layered onto some darker green card.
The flowers are from Prima.
I punched out some more flowers for the centre from  the same spotty paper and added a gem stone.
The sentment is from Flourishes Sweetpea set.
I`ve added my usual ribbon and bow to finish. I just can`t resist a big blousy bow lol.

Thanks for popping in and putting up with my ramblings.

  1. That bow is so lush - you interpreted the colours wonderfully. I too try to get the printer to go to the last drop!
