Tuesday Trigger




  It's been awhile since I've played along with the Tuesday Trigger challenge, but this snowy and cold Monday was the perfect time to get cozy in my stamp room and get the creative mojo flowing!  I was intrigued by these blue/green tones of color and also the gauzy, ruffly "feel" of the dress.  I went with a CAS design...layering up some scalloped borders and embossing a BG using a Fancy Fan EF by SU which echo the scalloped border.  The sheer ribbon has a hint of shimmer and elegance and, of course, I just had to add a butterfly!  I was amazed with all the gazillion shades of CS that I own that I didn't really have a good shade of emerald green which is the big color this year!  Guess that's a big hint to all those paper companies!

STAMPS: Old Fashioned Florals (Flourishes)
PAPER: Family Ties by Pebbles, Aqua Mist (PTI), Old Olive (SU), White
INK: Pool Party
ACCESSORIES: Fancy Fan EF (SU), Butterfly die by Cheery Lynn Designs, Large scallop border Die-Namics by MFT, Metallic nylon ribbon (Michael's).
