It's a Man-tastic Tuesday Trigger!

  Just have time for  a quick post-after my last post only hours ago we were hit with numerous fairly quick but also intense thunderstorms-one of which produced pea sized hail!! Thank goodness the bits of ice were small enough not to cause any damage. So before the next one arrives....

  Fortunately I had more than a week to make a card for this trigger at Moxie Fab World. I love being challenged like this and Cath finds the most enticing photos that just seem to reel me in!

   Here's the trigger:


   and here is my take:

   OK, I know, it's not  "man" tastic , but I am a girly-girl and knew immediately where I wanted to go with this :) I tried to stay with the basic design and color theme. I sewed a line between the leaves with brown thread.

   Products used: Inks; VersaFine Vintage Sepia (Tsukineko), Marvy Matchables #12 Grey, (Uchida), Colorbox Antique Pewter and Skye Blue (Clearsnap), Distress Ink in Festive Berries and Peacock Feathers (Ranger); fabric rose border (Hobby Lobby); clear stamps -Think Big Favorites #4 set,  Sending You set (PaperTrey Ink).

  I can't wait to go and see what some of the others have done with this trigger...the creativity is amazing!
