Moxie Fab World - Tuesday Trigger

Hey All!

A gloomy day today.  Rain and misty air all day.  I won't complain though.  Sure beats having to water the plants outside.  Car issues are fixed and I must admit there is a marked difference in the way the car drives now.  Much smoother!  Yay!  Advice from the service person who helped us: "You're babying the car too much.  Don't be afraid to just let loose once in a while and rev the engine high and just let 'er rip.  Mini's like to be driven hard.  It helps keep their insides cleaner." Hmmmmmm.  Where's an autobahn when you need one!  (I wonder if a police officer will let me off if I tell him I was speeding because the car needs to be driven fast! ;))

Anyway, on the creative front, I love this week's Trigger Tuesday: Feather Weather over at Moxie Fab World.
The colours are stunning and the image is so sweet.  What's not be inspired about?!

Here's what it triggered in my grey matter.  I based it off of this week's card sketch (#75) over at Cardabilities.
The feather stamps are from Hero Arts.  I stamped them in Versamark ink and then brushed on Perfect Pearls to give it colour and shine.  The gazebo is die cut from a Die-Versions die and the little bird images are from a diecut/stamp combo from Prickley Pear.  The flower is from Prima and the mini banners were made using a punch from EK success.  The patterned papers are from Recollections, Webster's Pages and DCWV.  The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp and the bird house stamp is from Unity.

This card was very fun to make and my mind was on fire when I saw the sketch and the trigger.  The feathers and flowers and birds make me think of nature walks with my kids in the wooded area near our home.  

I would like to submit this to the following blogs:
