Tuesday Trigger - Nice and Neutral







Really loved last weeks Tuesday Trigger and though I did not get to play along, I was blown away by those who did submit projects. Outstanding! This week, we have another inspiration photo to get us started for the Nice and Neutral challenge called Sunday in Bed, shown above.




I was inspired to create my card by several items. First the wooden head board. I chose to use an Wood Grain embossing folder by Tim Holtz. I really liked the flag banner on the inspiration photo and decided to make one of my own out of card stock and Divine Twine. I anchored the banner to the card with leaves carved out of coconut shell buttons. Keeping with the woodsy theme, I stamped a bear, owl and turtle by Cavellin Papers and Company in black ink onto various neutral squares and matted them multiple times. I chose these particular images from the Animal Set as they seemed to be the ones you might come across most commonly while on a walk in the woods. I am thinking one of my grandsons will be the recipient of this card! Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your comments. They are greatly appreciated. Yvonne

There is something so sweet about this and I have to stress when I use that word sweet, it is not sugary, it is wholesome and from the heart sweet.

I like that you used the woodgrain embossing for the background.

Those buttons are a-ma-zing! I love that they're made from coconut shell :) I've got to keep an eye out for that Tim Holtz folder too - I love that it's got a 'knot' in the woodgrain pattern. A perfect card for one of the men in your life!
