Moxie Fab-Tuesday Trigger!

Good morning and happy Thursday to you! I have been spending my week getting things ready for Kyle's graduation party this weekend! Cleaning, shopping, ordering cakes, balloons.....you know the drill! But at night when the house is quiet, I've been finding a bit of time for myself....to sit and create.....VERY happily! I decided for the 2nd week in a row (GASP!) to participate in the Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab World Blog! This week's colors are so soft and pretty.....
My colors aren't quite as soft and pastel, but I had to work with what I had on hand! So I improvised a bit! I did get the cream, yellow, grey, and blue in there though! I even incorporated some polka dots. : ) The stamp is by Crafty Secrets and it is called, I Love You Mother. (Which at the moment I can't find in the Crafty Secret's Store......) I stamped it in Versamark and used black embossing powder. I used several Spellbinder's dies to matte the image. I added a bit of vintage lace, a doily, and some seam binding to dress it up.
The flowers were cut using my Cricut machine and the Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge. I inked the edges in brown, applied glossy accents with my finger, and sprinkled Martha Stewart's Course Glitter over it. I had this grey rose brad in my stash and thought I'd use it for a bit more grey.
Well, I am off to the grocery store for snacks and such for Sunday!

Have a great day my friends!!!!
