Moxie Fab – Trigger Tuesday Card

26 Jul
I went over to the Moxie Fab World blog and saw this Trigger Tuesday challenge and I decided to play along. 
I had an idea that in my mind it was totally awesome.  It’s funny that what I dreamed up….is not what was created! LOL…. I am still indifferent to my card submission….but it took me a long time to get to this point and well I don’t have the heart to scrap it.  I will however be taking more time to create the idea that I have floating around in my head…so I will give it another go. (LOL!)
I was inspired by the colors and the light shining through the lanterns.   The main focal circles is drawn from the details that are in the back of the photo.  I cut out a circle and cut it apart to get all the fun elements from all the different papers that I used.  I used tissue paper because it reminded me of the texture of the lanterns. 
Share your thoughts with me. Please!   As you can see I am still in vintage mode.  I just love October Afternoon paper. I keep using this paper in almost every project.  I normally jump between a few of my paper lines, but I can’t seem to pull myself from the OA papers.  It totally strikes a chord with me. 
Everyone is at CHA this week…and I can’t wait to see all the photo’s and sneak peeks. Alright on with the Details.
Stamps:  Technique Tuesday – Ali Edwards, Loving Words, Vintage Text Scrapblock by CHF.
Ink: PTI – Drk Choco, TH Distress – Antique Linen, Tea Dye.
Paper:  Card stock – PTI stampers white, October Afternoon – Thrift Shop collection, Tissue paper.

Thanks for stopping by today and Many Blessings to you!
Sharing the Love:  The Lord is king! He is robed in majesty. Indeed, the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength….Pslam 93:1
