Tuesday Trigger

 
My attempt on the Tuesday Trigger.
This little card took me quite a few tries...I'm not sure if I like how it turns out, but here it is. I had the "vision" to use this lined stamp from Texture and Shape and was kind of stuck with the idea. It is particularly challenging to translate a linear and graphic image to a card design (at least for me anyways).

 I scored all the edges to created a textured look without adding any bulky embellishments. At least I can tell myself that I tried something different :)
 Thanks for stopping by!
