Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

I wasn't that impressed with the card I made Thursday night, so I knew I wanted to hit the craft room this morning. Hopefully this time with better results... something more my style. Here was the image from Pottery Barn for the inspiration.

And here's my card:


Stamps: Merry and Bright (PTI)
Pattern Paper: Eskimo Kisses 6x6 paper pack and Thin Ice (Basic Grey)
Card Stock: Stampers Select (PTI)
Ribbon: Fresh Snow (PTI)
Ink: VersaFine
Pearl: Denim (Kaiser)
Thread: Double Duty

In other non-crafting news. I think I've finished the dining room with some framed music sheets! I bought them from etsy, had them blown up at Wolfe (I wish I would have gone a little bigger but I still like it). And I just love the fun unexpected art.




What do you think? Cool or weird?  Also, please continue to ignore my curtains. I still have not ironed, and I'm so not looking forward to it!

I love the simplicity of your card....and how you paper pieced the Top Note die - that's really cool. People iron their curtains? - LOL Mine are some material from the fabric store that I just wash and dry and don't iron. I don't even think we own an iron. Have a good day!

Ughh! I hate to iron but know what you went through. I did it recently for a master bedroom with floor length panels and then toppers. It seemed to take forever! I love your CAS card! The red pattern paper looks lovely on the blue.

Your design and colors are amazing for the Tuesday Trigger card. I loved that you pulled in blue, it creates such a nice contrast to all the red and white. Very beautiful.

love the card & LOVE the sheet music! FUN! And different- I really love when we use things outside of their intended purpose! And find a friend with a steamer instead of ironing those curtains (not that they look like they need it in the pics anyway!)
Have a great day! :)

First off - I can't see any wrinkles, so I think that means you shouldn't iron....or just toss them in the dryer w/a damp towel (oops, now everyone knows my trick)

More importantly, I LOVE this card!! The pieced/quilted top note is gorgeous!! Totally see how you were inspired & you inspired me to pull out the Eskimo Kisses paper I've been hoarding :)
