Tuesday Trigger: Beads & Baubles

It was much easier to maneuver around the conference today since I didn't have to lug my poster tube around. I spent most of the day going to sessions and trolling the exhibit hall for free candy. I figured I got all the free non-food goodies yesterday. I didn't want to carry it home either.

One of my former co-workers who was at the conference asked me if the dress I was wearing was the one that I got the deal from Target. Why, yes, it is! (She had seen me post it on Facebook). Another co-worker bragged that she got the blouse she was wearing for $5 at Kohl's. These are my kind of people! We talk about all the awesome deals we get. I could never hang out with that Dana lady from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills who was talking about her $25,000 sunglasses and her Valentino outfit. ::eye roll::

Here's my take on this week's Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger challenge - Beads & Baubles. I decided to make my own background by using 3 floral stamps and then a label stamp with a sentiment inside. I was inspired by the colors of the image and wanted to tie in the pearls by adding them as embellishments to my card. The stamp image didn't stamp as cleanly as I would have liked, but at second glance, I think it goes well with the vintage feel of the card.
Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Chestnut Roan, Yellow Ochre, Orchid Pastel. Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen
Stamps: Studio G (sentiment), American Crafts- Herbs (yellow and tan flowers), Autumn Leaves- Build-a-Flower (pink flower), Martha Stewart- Clear Label Stamps (label)
White Gel Pen: Inkssentials
Pearl: Queen & Co.- Sunflower Yellow

Oh, you're my kind of people too! I love a good deal - can't imagine spending hundreds on a haircut, etc, especially when I could buy STAMPS! lol
Love your Trigger card - the vintage feel is perfect :)
