I'm playing along in the Moxie Fab World, Trigger Tuesday challenge. Take a look at this inspiration photo. The design of this room is contemporary, but I can still see feminine touches in the colors, the wall sconces and the flowers. So, that is where I drew my inspiration from.
THIS card I saw on Laura's blog at Doublestick Heaven. Don't you love that name? I knew I wanted to CASE her card eventually, and somehow this challenge card felt like the right place for it. I knew I wanted a block of pink (from that wall in the photo), with accents of black and yellow.
This is what I created.
I created the flower from some So Saffron grosgrain ribbon, using a technique by Beate that I found on SplitCoastStampers. It was so much easier to make, than I had thought it would be. And took just a couple of minutes. I finished off my ribbon flower with a small black gem.
The sentiment is from a PTI set that I recently purchased. I'd been eyeing that set for a while now, and finally caved in and purchased it. I'm so glad I did! It's a large set and I can see that it will get a LOT of use.
Thanks so much for taking a look today!
