Trigger Tuesday: Perty and Flirty

Hi friends!

Did you see the Trigger Tuesday inspiration pic on Cath's Moxie Fab World?  I don't think this coat could be any cuter. Totally dreamy!

Our challenge was to create a card that pays homage to this lovely inspiration photo, and here is what I dreamed up. 

You're Lovely

I echoed the yellow coat through the yellow flirty bloomers on the dress form.  I also selected a soft pink background to represent the floral background in the photo.  The buttons on the coat translated into the touches of black and of course the button in the center of the newsprint flower- see close up below. 

I incorporated prints like the houndstooth and polka dot that you would find in clothing because the inspiration was fashion and finally, the florals,  glitter, scallops, and ruffles just up the feminine ante just enough, I hope to capture the essence of this beautiful trigger.

There is still plenty of time to play along (deadline Sunday, July 24), and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Thanks for stopping by!
