Tuesday Trigger

This week's Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World was inspired by Alicia Thelin. She chose these elegant victorian chairs. I'm not one to create much victorian style stuff let alone cards. But the pattern was nice so I decided to give it a try. My creation a simple *Happy Spring* card.

My trigger, the plaid pattern and of course green :) My approach was to create a faux image of an egg. I chose a medium size oval nestabilities template and cut the center of the card, I placed my pattern paper on the back and embellished with flower and pearls. To create the border I wrote happy spring all around.

Simple and sweet. I'm pairing this card with an embellished bag of egg shaped chocolates :)

Thanks for visiting. Hope your days are not merely growing longer but warmer especially in your heart.


Cardstock: PTI's spring moss, Farmers market collection
Other: fine tip black pen, flowers, creative cafe pearls, nestabilities oval, frayed burlap for distressing
