Tuesday Trigger!

Have you ever been inspired by a simple photo? The photo in Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger did just that for me--again! Sometimes a picture will do that to you...I just love how the photo inspires me. I think I am more of a visual person as I tend to draw the feel, colors, mood from the photo.
This photo porjects an airy feeling, bright and colorful setting, and a sense of welcome.....and it says PARTY to me! So here's my take.

I had been in love with one layer cards lately. This Hero Arts Small Chandelier stamp (see here)  provides the perfect image. I also used the new stamp All you need to do is some masking and colors! It took me three takes to get the inking just right. It's not all perfect, but at least I'm somewhat content with the result. I adore this SRM Stickers. It's the PERFECT sentiment. So happy when the sentiment takes the guess work out of the card design. LOVE that about the SRM!!
