Pretty Little Petits Fours


Here's our inspiration for the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger.  Just loved the little blossoms and the pinks, so I went digging in my older stamps for just the right flower - found it in this Stampendous Charity Blossom, from 2000.  It's actually 2 roses in a little group, but I separated out just 1 of them, and colored each one a tad different, using Memento markers.  And I also pulled out this shadow stamp from Whispers/Sugarloaf Products, and stamped it in Bubble Gum ink.   This sentiment seemed just right; it's from PTI's Garden Variety Set.  The sweet gingham pink is an Amuse gingham........using up the last of it, time to reorder!



And here's another one, using my current favorite embossing folder of the hour:


The folder is called Poppy, by Cuttlebug, the paper is Core-dinations Vintage collection, Pink Tutu, sanded, the sentiment is from Jane's Doodles Mom's Flowers, and the little paper rose is from Mike's Recollections line.

This is a 3-week Trigger, so there's lots of time to enter - I'm sure we'll be seeing some fun takes on the inspiration!

Lin, I was just about to comment and say what a great card the gingham and blossom card is, when I scrolled Down and saw the embossed card. Wow! Both gorgeous. Can't decide between them, so just have to say beautiful takes on the trigger!
