With These Colors How Could You Possibly Go Wrong?

Just say'n.

When I saw this Tuesday Trigger photo over at Moxie Fab World I pretty much fell in love. The glossy red, the homey feel, and that brilliant mix of gorgeous, bright, happy color! *sigh* Pure. Unadulterated. Joy. Just Say'n.



Yes. It is SUCH a happy combination!!! So, that pretty much meant that I simply HAD to create a card based on the trigger!

Welcome Home


I stamped the image from 100 Proof Press in VersaMark ink and then embossed in red. That spoke to that beautifully glossy finish seen in the photo. I just couldn't neglect that piece because it caught me and absolutely drew me in! {Stamp Source}

Welcome Home (2)


I then, of course, focused on the brilliant color combination by adding a bit of pleated May Arts ribbon in a dark teal and finishing the card with a bright yellow butterfly! The little pearls on the butterfly bring it all together! They are from Queen and Company. The sentiment is done with Maya Road alphabet rubons.

Welcome Home (3)


So, that, my friends, seems like a GREAT way to brighten up a Thursday! OH...and good news! My car was actually less damaged than originally thought (About $1500 in total damages - I {heart} insurance!) and I am getting it back today!!! I *might* be even more excited that I am getting my prescription sunglasses back, which, I, of course, had brilliantly left in the car. HA! Anyway, I will have Lil' Blue back and that makes me VERY happy!!! Now I just need to try not to wreck her anymore. Just say'n.

Happy Thursday! Jingle OUT.
