Tuesday Trigger Time

When I saw the Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World this week, I knew I had to play along.  I'm a sucker for flowers :-)  Here's my take on it.  I used the colors and flowers for inspiration and wanted to make a soft, pretty, and feminine card.  

All supplies are from a muse|studio.  I think that just because is probably my favorite stamp set right now.  I keep reaching for it and I love everything I do with it.  It's seriously my go to set right now and I have to remind myself that I really do own other stamp sets.  Here's the deets.  I die cut a piece of vanilla cardstock with a Spellbinders Nestablility Labels Four die.  I then stamped the mesh background with latte ink over the die cut and then stamped the leaves and flowers from just because in lichen, apricot, and lemon whip over the background.  I highlighted the leaves and flowers with a clear Spica glitter pen for a bit of shimmer.  The butterfly is a piece of shell cardstock which is die cut with one of the butterflies from the butterflies trio die.  I colored a few pearl twinkle stickers with an RV95 Copic and attached them to the butterfly body.  The butterfly is adhered with a little bit of Tombow Mono Aqua on just the body so that the wings can fly free.  I attached a piece of lemon whip cardstock to the latte woodgrain cardbase, stamped the sentiment from just because in french roast, added a piece so washi tape from the spring collection. and then adhered the focal piece on the card with 3d foam adhesive.  I looked at it and it needed a little something else so I rounded the bottom corners of the card with my corner chomper.  Voila!  A card with a few of my current faves:  stamp set, washi tape, rounded corners, and sparkle.  What's not to like?
