Tuesday Trigger - Pattern Play

        Hope you are having a good day while you are out and about on the web. I have a card for you today that I made for the Tuesday Trigger Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. 
      I love the inspiration photo (below) Cath provided this time. It's gorgeous! I was really drawn to the embroidered circles. And, those colors - so very Moxie! I picked out a light purple that matches one of the circles and the center teal-y blue to go with it. To give my circles some demension like in the photo, I made fan-fold flowers. Before folding the bigger purple flower, I ran a teal-y marker down the strip giving the look of embroidery. Oh, I should have made a wavy line! Wouldn't that have been so very Moxie!?! Too late now- maybe next time. To give some balance to the card, I ran one score line down the left side of the front. Then, I ran several scores, each one longer the the previous, down the right side of the card.
     I slipped a heart punched with Fiskars That's Amore punch under each flower letting it just peak out to begin the stems. I made the leaves with the same heart punch by snipping each heart in half. I stamped my Hero Art sentiment (CL342 )with ColorBox chalk in wisteria on a tag. I ran the edges of the tag across ColorBox chalk in arctic deep. I did not intend to make a tag but instead to stamp directly on the card, but I messed it up. I was so mad at myself! I was not about to start over so I added a tag. Looks okay, but would have been better without the mess up. I don't know why I am telling you all this.
     Thanks so much for stopping by! If you have an inspired idea after seeing the trigger photo, you can play along with us. Details are here:  http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2013/02/tuesday-trigger-pattern-play.html

The card is beautiful and a great take on the trigger! I love the white background! I never do white! I SHALL do white! It's very classy looking, especially with the scored lines. I loved reading about your mistake, although I don't know why you 'fessed up! I would have thought the tag was just a great design detail!
Thanks for the sweet comments on Fiskateers! Hugz!
