Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger

Today I decided to play along with the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World.

The trigger for this week's challenge was this photo of a halter dress. What inspired me  were the bright colors of red,  yellow and white against the black background.  I love using black as a background because the colors really stand out.  This is the card I created based on this photo.

To begin with, I stamped and embossed the card base with a  dot stamp from Hero Arts.  I used pattern paper from Cosmo Cricket and Basic Grey for the rose, leaves and middle strip.
The frame stamp and sentiment are from Unity.  Another Unity stamp, Mixed Messages, was stamped and punched out as a background  for the leaves.  A Martha Stewart punch was used for the leaves and a paper doily finished off the card. 

I really enjoyed this trigger and if you'd like to play along, visit Moxie Fab World.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
