With Gratitude

Hey there!

Long time, no blog...sorry bout that.  We went up to Michigan to visit with my husbands family.  It is always so nice to get away!  I wanted to share a little card I whipped up super quick using the Tuesday Trigger from Moxie Fab World, Honoring Ombre.  Love that cake, and the lovely colors!

To start, I took inspiration from the butterfly and stamped a border of them across the front of a white panel, using Studio Calico's Calico Borders set.  I then took two distress ink, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberries and created a pallet with them, blending the colors together and applying them to the panel.  I seriously need some distress markers, I believe they would make this kind of thing suuuuper easy!

I splattered the color onto the panel and let it dry, which seriously took two seconds.  I then adhered it to a pinkish card base, and added some gems, as well as a fab sentiment from the Many Thanks set from Paper Smooches.

Here is a pic of the trigger:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great rest of your week.
