Now I Want Some Lemonade

Happy Tuesday! I had to enter a card into this week's Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger:


Pretty fab, huh? The card I made is a little different for me, but I wanted to capture the lemonade colors, the bold buttons, and the ruffles in a softer way than my normal style. Here's what transpired:


Yep, I made the flower, and yep, I'm pretty proud of it! I just added some Score-tape to the edge of the May Arts ribbon and wound it over a punched circle. Here's a close-up of the flower:


The pretty pink and text papers are from Authentique, and I have to say their 12x12 papers have the nicest texture to them....I'd love to wear a dress out of those papers....of course 12x12 isn't going to cover much. Anyhoo, I decided the edge between the pink and grey needed something else, so I did some hand stitching. The stitching is not perfect, but I think I like it more that way. Here's a close-up:

If you get a chance, play along with this week's Tuesday Trigger. Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
