Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Fantasy in Fall

 
Do you dream in cards?  I know it sounds crazy but sometimes I think I do.  I go to bed and unravel the threads of the day and sometimes ideas just creep in there.  I've been milling over this inspiration photo from Moxie Fab - its the Tuesday Trigger.  I knew I wanted to do something with lots and lots of those pretty rolled roses, but had to think of a way to make it come together.  I played around with wreathes and branches as well as different ways to get those bittersweet berries in the design but it just wasn't coming together for  me.   I almost decided to just skip it  - rather than fight it I could wait for the next challenge right?  And then this idea came to me.  I am really happy with the end result and I hope it is Moxie Fabulous!

I tucked in a few die cut leaves, and fr the sprinkle of berries I added pearls and gems in red orange and yellows.  The pretty sentiment is a Serendipity Stamp that I fussy cut.  The background is a lattice die cut on some distressed looking paper by Authentique.  I was originally going to emboss the background and distress with ink but this looks so much cleaner.

The weather is unseasonably warm here in the Midwest - I hope you have a beautiful day too wherever you are!  And oh yes... I hope you find some time to  play!!
