Tuesday Trigger in Bloom

Cath's Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab blog this week just spoke to me. First it was the color, then it was the sense of new beginnings and springtime. I knew I wanted to translate it into a card. My first attempt, however, was a disaster! I thought all hope was lost, then I stopped by a local scrapbook store today and stumbled on these beautiful Graphic 45 papers. This is what I came up with from the inspiration photo:
The flower and leaves are paper-pieced using the reverse sides of the sheets of paper that make up the background. The rest of the card is super simple, just a little layering and a button with some linen thread. I really love how this one turned out, and it's not often I say that! Thanks for some fabulous inspiration this week, Cath!
Stamps: Now and Always, Ippity by Unity
Ink: gingerbread chalk ink
Paper: kraft, choice buttercream, Graphic 45 dp
Accessories: Nestabilities, linen thread, My Mind's Eye button
