Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

**This is my second post for today! Scroll down to check out this weeks CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!**

When I saw the Trigger picture for the week, I knew I had to play along!  It's been awhile so I thought I would jump in!  I just recently got a fun new background stamp from Market Street, so I had to test it out!

Here is my take on this weeks Trigger...

What inspired me from this picture was just the comfie look of that bed!  Like sleeping in when it's cold outside....sorta wintery feeling...I needed that with all these 100 degree days we have been having!  So basically I went with winter!  And that that amazing flower pillow (I want a real one for my bed)...I had to remake that look for my card.  The flowers were cut out of white flannel and I just did a quick cross stitch with twine in the centers.  I attached them with Glue Dots and then added the wood grain buttons tucked in....1. for the woodgrain and 2. for some contrast.  I love those buttons and I thought it was a perfect reason to pull them out! 

Here is this weeks Trigger...


To play along, click HERE!  There are lots of fun cards over there now!  I am off to go check them out!  

Let me know what you think!  I would have to say this does not look like my usual style of card, so I don't know what I think of it yet!  LOL!
