Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

I rarely post about decorating these days, but besides paper crafts I love to decorate. I also love decor blogs and magazines. I can make a list of changes and decorating I'd like to do to my house a mile long. In many ways it's like creating on a larger scale. And trust me my love of neutrals and textures seriously comes out in my home. All that to say when I saw this image for today's Tuesday Trigger .... I just thought... ahhh...

I wanted to make a mostly white card. I started with my background that I embossed with white. I wish you could see it in person!
Stamps: Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions (WPlus9); Truly Appreciated (Hero Arts)
Ink: White Craft (Stampin' Up)
Cardstock: White (Gina K); New Leaf, Spring Rain (Papertrey Ink)
Ribbon: Celery and White Stripe, White Satin (May Arts)
Thread: White (Coats and Clark)

I'm off to watch Chase play softball with my little sister! We are going to bundle up... it's cold here!

I've not paired the New Leaf with this ribbon...I don't think. Gonna have to try that - it's such a fresh look. And yeah - what happened to place settings and curtains? I like your home decor stuff.
