Beginning of Peace- Tuesday Trigger: Farm Fresh

Howdy my friend!  Have you seen the latest Tuesday Trigger?!  I was a bit stumped when I saw that picture, and then I let that sophisticated pattern and the rustic appeal of that piece of cloth sink into my brain...  Love when cards like this happen! 


Starting with a Rustic White card base, I tried to replicate the intricate orange pattern and layout using the Mat Stack 2 collection from Papertrey Ink and Rusty Hinge Distress Ink.


I added a little flourish to the centers I then ran the card front through my Big Shot with the Linen & Canvas Impression Plate (PTI) to get that fabric look.




The blue jars possed a bit of a challenge, because I don't own jar stamps and really didn't have much in the way of images.  Lightbulb moment.  Use a great sentiment in said color!  Check!


Lastly, I threaded those big yummy blue buttons with twine (that's in the inspirational pic too!) and adhered them with glue dots.

Here is the pic:


I love how this one turned out!  I can't wait to give it away.  Hope you play too friend, thanks for checking it out!
