Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Chiclectic

Look at this Tuesday Trigger photo:


There's just SO MUCH going on! And yet, somehow it all works. Some people can put all these seemingly unmatching things together and come up with something great, but not me. I had to choose from the elements and make two cards to get as much as I did into them.

The first one has the orange/pink mix, the gold, the aqua and the white:


Actually, now that I see them one over the other, I think this one conveys a similar feeling to the original. And yet the card still feels like 'me'. Hmm - better than I thought (I just love it when that happens!).

The next one focuses on the lip art that's almost in the photo and the black and white comforter (as well as a touch of gold as a nod to the headboard):


Although it doesn't tie into the original as well (or maybe just not as obviously) as the first one, I still like it. Could have been a fun valentine!

It's amazing how focusing on the same photo can result in two cards that are so different!

Thanks for visiting!

Very pretty card! You captured the elements of the trigger without making the card too heavy. Nice!

Love, Love, LOVE what you did with this trigger! Both cards are great, but I especially love your "lips card". Great inspiration!

Both of your cards are great, I can see how you were inspired by the trigger photo. Your first one is my favorite though, the pink/orange combo looks amazing with the gold embossed over it. Who would have know? Great job!!

I think this proves a talented woman can get inspiration from just about anything. My personal taste would have me run screaming from this room, but you have made two incredible cards from it. Hats off!
