I ventured out today and participated in the Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday for the very first time. I saw the feature about Carolyn King (a sweet, and oh so talented, friend of mine), and was inspired to try my hand at it. When I saw what the inspiration was, I knew I had to play along. I adore notions of any kind: lace, buttons, clips, trim, string...anything. So this was right up my alley.
I was drawn to the grays and tans, along with the vintage feel of the lace so I tried to combine a clean, modern look with some vintage elements using some fun new paper and twine that I just received in the mail. The beautiful papers are from the 6x6 Memories pack by Teresa Collins. I love the collection of patterns and colors.
The sweet little sentiment "you're a star" is from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Say it Loud stamp set. I tell ya, that set has anything in it you could possibly want to say. I thought it fit perfectly with the little Canvas Star (Canvas Corp) that I wanted to include.
I also made my own little Twine Flower (or bow...whatever you want to call it), by gluing 3 layers of looped twine (gray and sparkly white), in 3 different sizes, together. I added a rhinestone embellished vintage gray button to the center, and also included some lace behind the movie strip, a Primitive felt heart (Sizzix), and some buttons (PTI).
That about sums up today's card. I hope you're having a terrific Tuesday!
