MFW Tuesday Trigger-Fall is in the bag






Moxie Fab World has this fun inspirational photo which I was not too sure about at first.
BUT I started thinking (I know, DANGER DANGER :) and this is what I came up with for another Thanksgiving card.
I took the colors pretty literally and punched out strips of daisies instead of circles. I used a tape runner to adhere the strips to the card diagonally then trimmed the excess off at the edges...have to remember to leave more card stock when taping these strips next time, cause I was poking glue out of the flower holes with a pin which was really time consuming :(
