Tuesday Trigger: Flower Power

I wore my hair down today (sorry, ponytail), and my haircut got good reviews at the office today. "You look more professional..." Well, dang, I should have cut this haircut sooner!

For this week's Tuesday Trigger (Flower Power), I had already die cut some flowers for the card and was just about to use them until my sister gave me another idea- sea anemones. Ah hah! What a neat spin on the Trigger photo. Sea anemones are kinda like flowers under the sea, right? I ended up punching out some suns in the colors seen on the flower pillow and stamped some sea life in the background. The white faux stitching didn't turn out as well as I would have hoped against the blue background, oh well.

What a neat idea!! I love the background paper on this - looks very 'watery' - such a creative take on the trigger! :0)!
