Farm Fresh - Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

Moxie Fab Trigger - Hand Painted Towel - Source: Etsy
My Interpretation
Hello Blogger friends!

this week I my heart caught when I saw the  Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger - Farm Fresh. 

  1. I LOVE the colors of the hand painted towel shown above! Winter will not end in our world, for months we have had white and gray. When I saw the trigger prompt something just made my little heart sing with the thought of Spring!  And, how sweet that the sun came out so I could capture it on the edge my card!  Makes me want to take a cat nap!
  2. I love the window in the background of the image - so I created my own with linen thread on the top panel. I thought about making my own 'window trim' to make it more window like, but no... the simpler the better.
  3. Flour Sack Towels.  Sigh... I have quite a few in my kitchen.  Just plain white.  I distressed the edge of the patterned paper to give it more of that 'thready fiber edge' look.
  4. And, there is just a sweet vintage feel to the image, which I tried to capture with the Stampin' UP set Easter Blossoms.  I never would have thought to stamp the silhouette with such a vibrant color!
 Inspired?  The challenge ends tomorrow!!!!! 

And... I thought I would share some of the trials and tribulations of attempting to make this card:
1.  I wanted to give the silhouette an apron, with orange flowers.  I tried a few materials, but nope! Spent too much time trying, and finally stopped.
2.  There is a dark blue ink error behind the sentiment panel. The image did not ink completely so I was using a paintbrush with my ink pad.  Got a little carried away in one spot!  Otherwise you would see more of the image!

Card Deets:
Inks, Cardstock, Linen Thead and Stamps:  Stampin' UP 
Patterned Paper: Sassafras Lass - Cherry Delicious Spring Sprig (a perfect match!)

Thanks again for stopping by:)

Your card is beautiful! I love the tree stamp and how you incorporated it. I also really like what you did with the panel that the girl is on. Very cool!

I can see the similarity to the hand painted towel in the colors and just the style itself. Beautiful CARD!
