Tuesday Trigger

This week seems to be challenge week for me. I haven't participated in some of these for months. I have missed them greatly and because of the lack of challenges in my crafty time my designs have struggled greatly. In other words I depend on these to keep my creativity fresh and flowing.

This week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World is a lovely Winter Cabbage brought to us by Regina Mangum. Isn't it just stunning??

When I first saw it I thought what can you create with such strong colors and what should the occasion be? Well, here's what I came up with.

I created a Sympathy card. These are no fun to create and it wasn't what I was going for but when I had finished my design I couldn't think of anything else but sympathy. The colors are rich and my inspiration came from the hues of the cabbage and the layers. That's why I partially cut out flowers from my cardstock. I added the green leaves simply to add some life to the dark tones.

Thanks for visiting and don't forget you have till Monday night for this challenge.

I'll be posting my give away in a couple of weeks so stay tuned for that!!!

Cardstock: Eco white Paper Source, Deep Icy Indigo, PTI's Spring Moss
Stamps: PTI's mixed messages
Ink: Palette chartreuse, Adirondack lettuce, eggplant, Versa Color boysenberry, PTI's vintage cream
Other: craft knife, rhinestones

What a pretty card! Really captures the triger! And your right it is no fun to make sympathy, it's always better to have it made before you need it!
