Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday, CAS-ual Fridays, Wee Memories and Freshly Made Sketches

Sliding this in under the wire for Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday!


I tried to recreate the blues and greens within the flower on the cushion but don't think I own the correct Copics for the job.  ;)  Of course, the photo doesn't do the card justice; it's really not too bad IRL.

The background was the first thing that popped into my head when I saw this photo. This is the most popular stamp I've seen from the Background Basics: Retro stamp set.

CAS-ual Fridays is having a Mini Card week! These are definitely lots of fun to make in multiples but this card was definitely a one-time thing! My card measures 3¾ × 3¾ inches.

Wee Memories has challenged us to use NO patterned paper... Pshaw! That's no challenge for me! The challenge is to USE patterned paper!  ;)

I'm using this week's Freshly Made sketch (yes, again!). With my own dose of interpretation, of course.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
