Wish Big Tuesday Trigger


Happy Monday, Chicas!

Wish Big Tuesday Trigger

I told you I got quite a few challenge cards done this weekend, so I’m back again to share another one.  This is for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger.  I haven’t played that challenge in Cherished Squaresa long time, but have been wanting to.  So when I saw Cath’s trigger for this week, I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  The pattern of the quilt reminded me of the quatrefoil pattern that I am obsessed with lately!!  In fact, when we get back to AZ, I plan to stencil that pattern on one of my walls in what will become my new craft room (former guest bedroom).  I can’t wait!  When I pulled colors from the afghan, the teal, lavender and gray spoke to me.  I never would have paired those colors together, but my daughter was in a wedding on Saturday, and that’s what the bride’s colors were.  I really, really like it!!


STAMPS:  PAPERTREY INK (Big & Bold Wishes)
INK:  FRESH INK (Slate Pigment Ink)
PAPER:  PAPERTREY INK (Hawaiian Shores CS), NEENAH CLASSIC CREST (Solar White Ultra Smooth CS)
ACCESSORIES:  LIFESTYLE CRAFTS (Trellis Cutting Die), PAPERTREY INK (Plum Pudding Satin Ribbon), SAKURA (Quickie Glue Pen), ME & MY BIG IDEAS (Self-Adhesive Rhinestones)

I have a couple more challenge cards that I created last weekend, and am actually on a creating roll so I may just keep on going!  LOL  So I’ll definitely be back with more to share very soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

I love this pattern, too! Wouldn't it be dramatic on a focal wall? I've thought about it, so I hope you'll post pictures if you do it in your craft room. Such a simple &elegant card!
