It's a Citrus Celebration

I know it's Thursay...or is it?  ;-)  DH had a day off yesterday (I use that term loosely...he mowed and sprayed the lawn, cleaned our big wooden front entry doors,  installed the new keyboard for the desktop (in our office, it requires yoga moves) and grilled the chicken for dinner! Is he a sweetheart or what?)  I lose track of the days when he has his mid-week day off. 

Since we live in citrus country, I couldn't resist this week's Moxie Fab  Citrus Celebration Tuesday Trigger.







Isn't this orange, lemon and lime combo refreshing and fun?  I love those polka dot cupcake liners!






Here's my interpretation....

I started with a base of PTI Lemon Tart then layered it with some DP from one of my favorite paper packs, DCWV Citrus Collection.

The bird is cut out and popped up on dimensionals.

A bit of stitching, some hand gathered ribbon, a few fun buttons, and some distressing with scissors and ink to soften the edges and done. 

Supplies:
Paper - PTI Lemon Tart, SU Orange, Neenah Solar White
DP - DCWV Citrus Collection
Ink - Versafine Orange, PTI Chai
Stamps - PTI Everyday Classics, Impression Obsession bird
Accessories - sewing machine, PTI buttons, dimensionals, ribbon, glue dots, scissors



Thanks for stopping by my paper playground...don't forget to comment for the blog candy here.  It's good to be back!

Pin It!

The TT makes me feel happy and your card accomplished the same thing. The curved lines on the gingham paper, the stitching and the ruffled ribbon all add to the charm of this card. Great take on the challenge.
