Tuesday Trigger

Do you not LOVE this inspiration photo for this week's Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger?  Cath entitled it "Porch Play".  


I adore this little scene.  I would never have the courage to put these colors together in my home, but that didn't stop me from reconstructing it on a card!


As soon as I saw that gorgeous red mirror in the inspiration photo, I remembered this frilly oval frame that I was recently given by a special friend.  Then I just pulled the colors and some of the elements out of the inspiration: gerbera daisy, flower pot, turquoise fabrics, zig-zag trim.  I also scored the background of the card to resemble a panelled wall.

supplies: white, red, and green cardstock, dps from Stella & Rose Hazel paper pad and October Afternoon The Thrift Shop pad, Penny Black 303K Ruffle Frame, Hero Arts CL374 Big and Small Flowers, CL377 Be Happy (stem and leaves), CL493 Live Life, versafine onyx black ink, gardening cut-file from Vicky, white zig-zag trim
