Tuesday Trigger: Bright Spot

The slowly falling snow (and freezing rain?) put a damper on my spin class plans tonight. Instead of slipping and sliding on the road, I decided to not chance it, stay inside and scrap the people pictures from the wedding last Saturday. I intentionally used the same elements as the wedding food page, since these pictures were taken at the same event: Prima flowers, Cuttlebug diecut flowers, rhinestones, etc.

Page Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Stamps: Martha Stewart- Clear Label Stamps (label)
Die: Cuttlebug- Flowers (flowers)
Flower: Prima
Button: Favorite Findings in Pink
Brad: Recollections- Rhinestone Brads
Stickers: American Crafts Chipboard Thickers in Typo
Other: Magenta Sharpie Ultra Fine Point marker

For this week's Tuesday Trigger, I wasn't feeling really inspired right when I saw the picture. However, after I started going through my stamps, I found a sentiment that would be perfect for today's card. Because of all the light shining through the window, illuminating the room, I thought the sentiment "celebrate sunshine" would be appropriate. I chose bright colors that were featured in the picture and embellished the card with some glittered chipboard. I love how the green paper is slightly embossed. It's also got a pearly sheen to it. 48 loose 4x6 paper for $1.99 at Marshalls. Score.
Card Specs:
Embossing powder: Stampendous! in white
Embossing ink: VersaMark
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Red, Warm Green, Tangerine, Yellow Citrus, Orchid Pastel, Burnt Sienna
Paper: American Crafts- Letterbox (brown zigzag), American Crafts Specialty Paper in Pearl
Stamp: American Crafts- Dear Lizzy- Warbler (all)
Foam adhesive: Thermoweb
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Chipboard: American Crafts- Fieldhouse- Glitter Blue Skies

I'm off to watch a new episode of NCIS. Later, gators.
