Tuesday Trigger, Take Two

As I said yesterday, the Tuesday Trigger this time has my creativity simmering!


This time my eyes focused on the little flowery prints in the hexagons, and I went looking for a little flower stamp.  Once that was colored and trimmed out into a circle and framed with a brown scallop, my "plan" took on a life of its own.  I had originally thought I'd use some gingham and ditzy prints and make different sizes of circles to sprinkle down the card - that just didn't pan out, and instead I cut those same papers into strips and made a little strip-pieced panel, which I then embossed to look like it's been quilted.  I added some lace down the right side, found a sentiment that would fit into what was left of my card base, and here is the result:
