Tuesday Trigger: Girly and Gutsy

Hello friends!

(This is my second post for the day- scroll down if you would like to see my contribution to the August Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.)

It's another Tuesday Trigger project based on a lovely photo that Cath found and posted on the Moxie Fab World Blog.  (Click the link for details and to play along!)

And here is my card:

I decided to use the leaf motif in the black and white rug as the focal point for my card.  I stamped the ginko leaves from PTI's Harvest Berries set in black ink and added some bling in the place of berries- ala the chandelier and wall sconces.

(By the way, can I just say, Harvest Berries....I love this stamp set!  You may be seeing it quite a bit in coming posts.)

I also tied in the chartreuse green chairs and pink walls into the card as well through cardstock and ribbon.  By the time I added the ribbon and rhinestone buckle to the card, it was feeling pretty formal, so I used a beautiful, scripty congrats sentiment from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

Well, there you have it!  I hope you find some inspiration in my take on the trigger. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Take care,
