Tuesday Trigger

Good Morning to you all!

The sun is shining and all`s well with the world! (well it is here anyway).

It`s tuesday trigger time again over at Moxiefab World.
and I couldn`t wait to get cracking. This is the inspiration we were given   
and here is my version.

I`ve used the same technique for the flowers as I did in my last post but this time I wanted smaller flowers.
As I said the only scallop edge punch I have is a 3`` jumbo punch so I had a little think and practice and came up with these.
Instead of a scalloped edge I just a small circle with a circle nestie, then trimmed around the edge with my deckle edge scissors. Made the flowers up in the same way and Voila, carnations. You do realise you are going to get overdosed on these flowers for some time, lol.

The rest of the card was really simple.
The DP is by Pink Petticoat Elegant Swirls in Turquoise.
I layered it onto some dark apricot card  to tie in with the tea cup in the picture.
I used my Swiss Dots folder and a piece of white card then cut a large circle with a nestie.
I cut two ovals in turquoise card to represent the vase in the piccy and used one for the sentiment.
Both the white card and the oval are raised with foam dots.


Well I`ve finally caught up with the aftermath of our holiday. All the washing and ironing is done so we have clothes to wear now, lol.  As it`s wednesday today I`m off to see my mum. I`ll catch up with you all later.

Thanks for popping in ...Lynne xxx
