Tuesday Trigger Time!

Hey Guys!

This week's Tuesday Trigger: Apache Tears In the Key of Autumn really caught my attention during my visit to the Moxie Fab World blog today so I just had to play along.  This is the trigger image:

 I love all the colors in it, but never would have thought to use all of them together.  I was also inspired by the chevron pattern, so I used both the color and the chevron as the jumping off points for my card.

I stamped the chevron image from Life Love Life in the same color pattern as the trigger photo.  I chose Papertrey Ink colors: Soft Stone, Aqua Mist, Scarlet Jewel, Summer Sunrise, Raspberry Fizz, and Limeaid Ice.  Then I trimmed the strip and mounted it on a piece of aqua mist cardstock also trimmed to match the shape.  I drew the border with a black sharpie and then I stamped the balloons from Heart to Heart #2 and then for the center balloon I die cut a heart and stamped it with the Heart to Heart #3 image and added it to the card with foam adhesive after stamping the balloon strings and sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday in true black. I finished the card off by adding the chevron strip to the bottom of the balloon strings.

I am really excited to have time to participate in more of the online challenges! They are a lot of fun and push me out of my comfort zone, which is always a good thing!

Now that you've seen my take on the Trigger challenge, go check it out and give it a try!
