Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

I absolutely love red and white together.  When I saw this week's Tuesday Trigger  from Moxie Fab World I decided to play along.  I used PTI Rustic Cream CS and stamped different images to create a slightly worn look.  I really wanted to sew the different shapes together with decorative stitching like a crazy quilt, but I guess I wimped out.  It's a basic card, but I need a few Thank You cards that are easy to mail, so this is one down.

I'm still trying out all my new PTI goodies. I bought the 2008 Holiday Tag Set just for this image.  I'm making a lot of homemade gifts with coffe mix and hot chocolate mix, so I wanted this tag.  I decided to try it out on this card and this weeks CPS sketch.

Still loving everything PTI however I am a little disappointed in the color of the melon berry CS compared to the melon berry ink.  The CS is more pinky and the buttons and ink are more orangey.  I wanted the orangey tones so I guess it's the CS tone that I'm disappointed in.  Still a beautiful color... it just doesn't match the ink.  Oh well.

Everything is straight forward with this weeks Card Patterns sketch.  I made my first order from PTI and I have to say that I am in love with their cardstock.  Especially the rustic cream CS.  I just love it!!!  I'm really pleased with the rustic & weathered look the stamps have on the rustic cream.  I already knew that I loved the quality of their stamps but I'll definitely be ordering more of their CS when I get a chance.
