A Little Notion

**This is my second post for the day.  For my A Passion For Papertrey post please scroll down or click here.**



Hello again!  I'm back from a lovely afternoon in the Craft Cave. I got some special orders completed and also played along with the current Tuesday Trigger at the Moxie Fab World.  Initially I was a bit intimidated by all that ribbon and lace but after reminding myself that I didn't actually have to use ribbon and lace I was able to get down to work.  I took my inspiration from the colors, the lace, the rickrack and the buttons.  It took a bit of fiddling around with the elements until they "felt" right but I like the final result.  Have a lovely night and here's to a good week ahead!

Great use of the colours - they actually look like you wanted to use all of them (sometimes it's hard to make a card look like that when you're given the colours). That was not explained very well, but I really, really like this!

Yep, I look at that trigger pic and my brain just kind of shuts down. :P I'm so impressed how you cut through all the noise and made this clean and gorgeous card!

Fabulous card and a wonderful take on the Trigger! I love the colors and movement the butterflies lend to your card.

I had plans to play along this week but alas ended up in hospital instead. Home again now and all is good, but I agree it was a difficult one, but you really rocked it Jen, perfect colours and texture!

Beautiful! Love the ric-rac, lace tape and charming butterflies!

Kelly Griglione said...

Agree with Ardyth, looks like you weren't made to use these colors! Who knew they looked so well on kraft?!

Ooh, I really like this. Such a different color combo that you really made work. The layered notions are great!
