Tuesday Trigger - For You

I'm sliding in my Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger card under the wire.  When I saw the inspiration photo I knew I wanted to play along because I have a thing for petits fours....I eat them, in large quantities, and I greatly enjoy doing so.

I actually started this card a couple weeks ago, but then realized that it was a three here I am linking up on the last day.....I'm a bit of a procrastinator, no?

A pretty simple card.  I used Clear and Simple Stamps' Rounded Squares Quad to cut the windows in the woodgrain cardstock.  Then I laid that piece on top of the card base and traced around the openings with a pencil.  This gave me kind of a template to use in adding the pink ink to the card base.  I used hero Arts Bubble Gum ink with a blending tool.

The woodgrain paper was adhered with dimensional foam tape, and then sequins were added to emulate the flowers on the petits fours.

The sentiment is from Scrappy Moms, stamped in Slate ink on vellum and then adhered to the card.

Hope you guys are enjoying your Mother's Days.  We went to church this morning, to dim sum for lunch, and later, we're going to go get some free Mother's Day froyo.
