"We do not remember days, we remember moments." Cesare Pavese

Another weekend is gone and so is our good weather! Back to yucky rain... oh well! That's western Washington for you! I have a card that is nice and bright to share. I haven't done a Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge in along time, but was really struck by the bright colors in the trigger photo and so decided to play along. I'm also going to be putting this into the current CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use punches or dies.
My card is a take on a card I made that was published in the March 2012 issue of CardMaker magazine. Instead of using one color for the buttons as I did with the baby card, I used rows of buttons in the same colors as the cookies. I then die cut the flower from white cardstock and added the rhinestone to the center to bring in the hint of sparkle you can see on the cookies. I backed the white square with the dark grey cardstock to bring out the color of the buttons a bit more. I decided to not put a sentiment on the front of the card, but instead finished off the interior with the sentiment. I decided to stamp it using the new Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink making it a bit hard to see! The sentiment says "Live in the sunshine" which I thought was very appropriate for the card.
Thanks for stopping by....
