It's a Sweet Surprise for Tuesday Trigger!

 How could I not make time to play after viewing this gorgeous trigger over at Moxie Fab World!

                       Here's my take:

   I wasn't quite sure what to put in the center at first-an image? a greeting? a flower? So the unfinished card sat on my desk.I had these straight pins with pearlized hearts I recently found at JoAnnes and wanted to somehow use at least one. Then I received some mail and on the prettily decorated envie (and within it a BEAUTIFUL handmade Easter card from my friend LuAnn-thank you!) was this postage stamp. Eh voila-my card was complete!

  Products used:white cardstock, patterned paper, Spellbinders Grand Calibur die cut machine, Floral Doily Motifs and Standard Circles Lg dies, Flourish Impressabilities embossing plate, aqua organza ribbon, pop dots (to raise the lg doily motif),  pearlized straight pins and a recycled postage stamp.

 I can't wait to hop on over, add my link and see some of the others.I know I'm in for lots of "sweet surprises"!

 Thank you kindly for leaving a comment. I love hearing from you.
