Playing at Moxie Fab at the very last minute



I hope everyone has had a lovely Easter, I can't believe how quickly the Easter break has gone but I have to admit had a really lovely Easter. The mass we went to yesterday morning was great and it was so nice to see so many people attending, the homily was riveting and very relevant to our daily lives and the true meaning of Easter. In the evening we went to see the "The world's most exotic Marigold hotel", I absolutely loved this movie and want to see it again, I would highly recommend it.

Now to my card, I had been wanting to play along with the tuesday trigger all week but didn't have any ideas, hopefully I haven't missed the deadline. I started playing around and came up with this CAS card. I was mainly influenced by the blue and white checked ribbon against the white background. I wanted the main focus to be on the blue and white checked elephant and the hearts coming out of its trunk. I didn't have any checked paper and so created it on photoshop.I printed the sentiment directly onto the card, punched out the elephant and hearts  that I stuck to the card with dimensional foam, I added self adhesive small white heart  pearls to the checked hearts and drew on the stems for the hearts. I am happy with the way this card turned out, very simple and it's a great design to use up scraps of paper.

Thanks so much for visiting and have a great week :)
