Tuesday Trigger - Can you feel the summer breeze?

I felt a light summer breeze today thanks to Cath and Kim Kesti.... There`s a new challenge over at Moxie Fab World called "Tuesday Trigger". Kim was inspired for a card by a wonderful summery wedding themed trigger and inspired me, too:



For the first card I was inspired by the trigger theme (wedding), by the summery colours, the pattern and colours of the tie and the pattern of the trigger itself. For the second card I was inspired by the cute bow on the shoes and the flowers on the cake. I wanted to create a breezy card, capturing the summery light feeling of the trigger.

Supplies: cardstock, stamps (Papertrey Ink) patterned paper (American Crafts, BoBunny, Papertrey Ink), rub-on (Creative Imaginations), pearls (Hero Arts)

Have a wonderful Saturday and thanks for visiting today!

Hugs,
Vanessa

I love how you were inspired in different ways for each card, Vanessa! I especially like the "breezy" feeling of the second card, and the first card has the same playful yet elegant look to it that I the "trigger" seemed to convey! Thanks for playing!
