Tuesday Trigger

Here is the classy inspiration for this week's Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger. When I look at this picture I think "elegant". Love the toile and the beautiful curved lines of the chairs. Here is my card: I love this soft sage green, and used a shadow ink to stamp a soft brocade background and switched up the checks in the inspiration picture to stripes, adding pearls and rounding all the corners. I learned to make this flower from Jackie; it is composed of punched hearts folded in half.

Supplies: Hero Arts stamps S5264 Antique Flower Background, CG148 Blossoms (leaves), AR130 Handwritten Sentiments, Bazzill dotted green paper, ivory and green cardstock, unknown striped printed paper, Hero Arts Shadow soft leaf and shabby shutters distress inks, cream Art Flower, green pearls
