Trigger Tuesday: An Exercise in Exotic

Welcome to my first ever Moxie Fab Trigger Tuesday: An Exercise in Exotic!

And let me tell you...that is not easy for me!  I am a CAS sometimes, Monochromatic girl...as I have so often discussed!  So this was a fantastic challenge for me! And in the end I used ONE stamp!  Here the inspiration piece from Cath...

I felt like the first thing I saw was all the amazing texture!  I instantly thought of all the embossing folders I have...lost and forgotten ...in a drawer...somewhere!  :)  So I pulled a few out here!  :)

I also saw the metals in the draw pulls and the jewelry.  That big flower on the bottom right of the jewelry box spoke to me too!  I didn't know how exactly to incorporate metal so I dug around until I found these CTMH brads!  I thought they were kinda perfect!  :)

So anyway, hope you like my take on this inspiration piece!  This is my first time playing with the Moxie Fab World Challenges!  I might have to try another one...it helps me think outside of my "box"!  :)

Have a great day!
