Tuesday Trigger - Finesse the Dress

Time for another Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World. This dress is our inspiriation. Isn't it gorgeous!?! I've added a link to it in case you want to join in on the fun and make your own project.






And, here is my take on it.


I first noticed the elegance of the dress. So, I knew I wanted to carry that same elegance into the making of my card. Turquoise and gray are one of my favorite color combinations to work with in my paper creations so, I was excited to use it on my card. I used a floral vine stamp I bought just the other day from Paper Source. To me it carries a similar vibe to the embroidery on the dress. I stamped it in a light gray chalk that matches the lighter gray paper here. In a nod to bottom and top edges of the dress, I added a ruffled edge to one side of the card. The dark gray card stock is almost a perfect match to the gray of the dress. I've been waiting for the perfect project to use this silver lace. I think it adds a great finishing touch to the card.
