Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger

Good morning everyone!! I've been doing a whole lotta stampin around here....I must be ignoring my house work...oh yea!!!  We watched the football games on Sunday and both my teams lost...that was a real bummer!!!  So to beat the blues, I stamped all day yesterday...and I'm headed to the stamp room right now!!!!!! I have some birthdays and my parents 67th wedding anniversary coming up so I better get busy on their cards!!

This is a birthday card for a friend at church...I used the Sweet Sunday Sketch #150 and the Moxie Fab Worlds Tuesday Trigger for my inspiration. I took my inspiration from the colors and flower theme. The papers are all from Glitz Beautiful Dreamer collection...a Tim Holtz die was used for the flowers and a Spellbinders die was used for the leaves. A little Pool Party ink was sponged on the leaves to brighten the color a bit. The sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Birthday basics set, the distressing, sewing, ribbon, and the button with twine finished it off.
Recipe:
Stamps PTI
Paper: Vanilla, Gina K.'s Chocolate Brown, Glitz Beautiful Dreamer dp
Ink: Pool Party, Memento Tuxedo Black

3. Catered Crop - use a printed page or newsprint somewhere in your project (the background layer and one of the flower layers)
