Moxie Fab World’s Tuesday Trigger is fast becoming my favorite challenge. Cath always picks amazing images to be inspired by. This weeks had me a bit stumped at first.

But then I turned the stitching lines from the napkins into a paper pierced border, the button tag in patterned paper and overall kept sewing as inspiration and buttons as one of my focal points.

For this card I started out by finding just the right patterned paper for the focal point background. After looking through my stash I settled on a paper from My Mind’s Eye Stella Rose Gertie collection. I cut it down to 2 7/8″ x 3 5/8″  and stitched ti with turquoise thread to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock cut and embossed with a Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities die.

I stamped the dress form from Lawn Fawn’s Sew Lovely stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Kraft cardstock. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Dress: BG000, BG01, BG13, stand: E43, E44, E47, dress form: E50, E51, E53) and a white gel pen.  It was cut out and adhered to the lower right hand side of my stitched panel.

Three buttons from My Mind’s Eye and Cosmo Cricket were stitched to the upper left hand corner with Cappuccino Twine.

The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock folded in half. On top of that is a 3 15/16″ x 5 3/16″ piece of Kraft cardstock. A border had been drawn with a brown Micron pen and inside that drawn border another border was paper pierced.

The image layer was adhered to the card base with dimensionals. The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with one of Spellbinders Fancy Tag dies. The sentiment was adhered over the the dress form with dimensionals and Scor-Tape to create the curved look. Two pearl pins I had picked up at a hobby store in the sewing section were stuck through the dimensionals to add a little bit of extra interest. Aqua Marine Kaisercraft Rhinestones on each end of the sentiment panel finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
