Another great trigger at Moxie Fab



As soon as I saw the trigger target at Moxie Fab I knew I had to play along and at first it was only because it was a CAS design with three lovely birds. However, as I drilled into the details of the picture I realized the text was part of the lyrics of one of my favourite Bob Marley songs, I was totally excited about this and came up with this card this evening.

I was influenced by the simple lay out, the colours, the three birds and the lyrics. The text design was designed  using  photoshop and printed directly onto the cardstock. I used the actual trigger picture to create the template for the birds which I printed onto white paper, stuck onto the back of the patterned paper and cut out the birds, I drew on the eyes and added tiny diamante as the birds feet.The birds have been stuck to the cardstock using self-adhesive dimensional foam.

The challenges I have included-
PaperPlay Challenges-Things with wings
Inspire me fridays-Anything goes

I was one of the Trigger targets for this card over at Moxie Fab.
