Trigger: Rainbow Bright

I feel I should start out with apologizing for my last post. I've had a difficult time dealing with myself. It's been better yesterday and today. I got on the treadmill, started to clean the house, and I've become hopelessly addicted to Pinterest (thanks, Cath!). If anyone wants an invitation to Pinterest, just let me know. I have five invites!

I tried to make a card or a scrapbook page several times over the last several days (or has it been weeks?), but nothing came to me. I found myself on several occasions, sitting at my desk and staring at some sparkly patterned paper for 30 minutes until I realized I wasn't getting anywhere.

Today I would say I got somewhere. I at least a finished project - for Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger. I normally have a hard time being inspired by the triggers - I take them too literally and come up with something totally ridiculous and I don't even bother submitting it. Hey, at least I'm learning and I'm trying! This week the trigger really inspired me.

I have a stack of paper with some bright and fun rainbow colors that I bought from a scrapbooking store that recently went out of business, and I've been dying to use some of it. I began by totally scraplifting a card that was given to me by Cari (who I found worked for Paper Crafts!)

Cari does a card swap - every month or so everyone swaps a card they made. This is one of those cards.

I really liked the idea of the flap that tucks underneath the bird, but there were a lot of details I didn't like so much. The glitter seemed odd, or poorly placed, or something, and I wasn't digging the frayed twine/string/ribbon thing.

This is my take:

Be patient with me on the quality of the photos - I'm still learning :)

I'm thinking about giving this card to my "Little Sister" someday. I will officially become a "Big" tomorrow when I meet Jade!


Alright, 'nuff of that. Run over to Moxie Fab to submit your project!


  1. I like the idea of the flap tucking under the tab too - must give that a try :)

  2. Hey Tessa! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)


Thanks, mango! You're a fabulous person and there needs to be more people like you that comment on awesome posts.
