Hi-Ho Trigger!


Today I am trying something new. I’m playing along with the Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World’s blog! I really enjoyed the challenge of creating a card based simply on the inspiration of this week’s Trigger, which looks like this:

Here is how I was inspired by the original compared to how I applied the concept in my version:

yellow : yellow

doily : doily

color block : ribbon

vase with flowers : flowerpot with topiary

one-word sentiment : one-word sentiment (with lightened sentiment added)

sunshine : flower

Now for the supplies, breakout photos and simplified instructions …
