Moxie Fab World - Tuesday Trigger: Home Sweet Home


I'm having a quiet weekend - my favorite kind.  Everyone else is off doing their things and I'm left home to "keep shop" so I thought I'd play along with Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger.  Is this Moxie Fab Trigger Target adorable or what?  I love all the details on this sweet little house with the bird on the roof.  It was easy to find some inspiration here to create a gorgeous one-of-a-kind card.   I was immediately inspired by the polka dots, and the sweet little bird on the roof.  I tried to keep in all the little details I love - the ribbon ruler, the green scallop trim, the button door knob and even the little flower trim.  I embossed the wood grain bottom panel of my card with an embossing folder and then lightly ran a Tim Holtz/Ranger distress inkpad over the impression to make the wood pop.  I originally tried Antique Linen which wasn't quite dark enough, and then settled on Vintage Photo.  I tried to replicated the window with my sentiment - the red frame on the outside with the blue polka dot pattern on the inside.  All the blue polka dots are stamped, and the wing for the bird was cut free hand.
I hope you like it!  Thanks so much for stopping by to have a look.  Enjoy your day!!

Jeanne

This is so much like the inspiration picture, I can't imagine how you made it so much alike with all the stamps and dies! I especially love the bird with the folded wings and how you made the sentiment panel like the window in the picture. Loved this, great job!

Jeanne there's so much I like about this card! I really love that ruler ribbon and then the cool bow you made on top of it with the blue ribbon, then the bird's patterned and crinkled wing, and that neat woodgrain...you're so winning this challenge! :)
