Moxie Fab and Unscripted sketches

I have a couple cards to share with you today.

First off, this amazing Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab. 


This is a bit on the artsy side and I love working with that style although I don't very often.  It just seemed this Trigger piece required it. 
When I cut out the flourish image, I made sure to leave white cardstock showing to go along with the black and white in the one element in the Trigger.  Of course, the turquoise in the doily that is a die from My Favorite Things matches part of the headboard.  The great pink patterned paper by Recollections goes along with the pillows.

Notice my background design? I used an orange cardstock for my card and I knew I needed some kind of a design on the card but it could not be overpowering. I used a stencil and sponged it with a Chalk stamp pad by Clearsnap.

Now to share my Unscripted sketch card for this week. There is a piggyback challenge this week to add sewing to the card.

I used a Hero Arts cloud background stamp and then this super cute bunny in an airplane stamp by The Cat's Pajamas for the main elements on my card.


The cloud die is also by The Cat's Pajamas and I did a line of machine sewing through it.
I also have a photo to share...

My first daffodil bloomed in my yard this week!

Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Great job on the TT card - that was a great idea to sponge your background. I need to try that technique soon! www.thegivingfinch.com
