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!!
