A Trigger and a Sketch

 This is the current Trigger.  I love challenges so I made sure I got to play along with this one.
 First of all, I loved the shape of the purse and then the dots arranged in the pattern.  I didn't have a purse shape to cut with my Cricut but when I saw this adorable typewriter, I knew that would be the look I wanted.   
 This shape also cuts the piece of paper and it slips inside the cut out in the typewriter.  The rub-on sentiment is by EAD Designs/Paper Smooches. 
 The keys in the typewriter are cut out with this cut but I wanted the keys to be more pronounced, so I punched circles in the colors in the Trigger and added them with foam tape.  Smaller black circles were added on top of those and I coated them with Aleene's Paper Glaze. 
Now for the Unscripted sketch for this week.  I turned the sketch for my card.
 This sketch has a Piggyback challenge to go with it and that is to use only cardstock.  I did use tiny pieces of a BoBunny patterned paper though since it was the perfect color. 
 That wonderful doily shape is cut with the Art Philosophy Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge.  The two layers of doily stamps are by Waltzing Mouse stamps. 

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
