Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger - Garden Glory

OK I saw the new Tuesday Trigger and the first thing that hit me was that fantastic material on the chair - I thought "what a perfect background".  It reminded me of a trellis or some fancy ornamental iron in a garden.   I tried to duplicated that by embossing some cream colored paper, and adding some emerald green accents. 

I grabbed the turquoise off the book on the table and used that for a thin border around my base, and then attached it all to a cream colored card base - like the frame on the chair.  Looking at that gorgeous pillow and the peony's inspired me to put a big fat turquoise flower smack dab in the center!

I made the rolled flower out of seam binding and glammed it up by sewing some beads in the center.  I also added some gems to the background to give a little sparkle.  I hope you like it!
