Poolside Inspiration

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a fab weekend! Our visit to the zoo was fun, but we had some drama when Alyssa wasn't allowed to touch every animal she saw :) The cutest thing happened when we watched the sea lions. After one breached the water surface and blew the water out of his nose she screamed "Bless You!"
But I am here to share a card and not bore you with stories of a mother hen! When I saw today's new Tuesday Trigger on Moxie Fab World I was inspired immediately! Love the colors! Here is my take:


The paper, pearls, flowers and the flourish stamp are all Prima Marketing. For the butterflies I just cut off one petal and voilà! The sentiment is from PTI's Damask Design set.

Ok, sun is shining, naptime is over - I am leaving for the garden! Hope your day is fabulous!

Hugs,
Vanessa
