Moxie Fab - Tuesday Trigger & CPS Card Sketch

Happy Sunday to you all! Hope your weekend was relaxing and fun.
Here I am posting to a couple of challenges and getting some Birthday cards completed for mailing on time~Yay! Don't you just love the colors of the Moxie Fab-Tuesday Trigger?
This happens to be one of my most favorite color combos. I actually did a few more cards with these colors, which I will post later... guess Regina's "King Cabbage " has truly inspired me.
I really like the sketch over CPS, check it out

My Card ~ Now I know owls don't have purple and green feathers that are all a glitter, but I couldn't use brown tones on this cute little guy for this challenge, could I :o?
Stamps: Owl from Inkadinkado Patterned Birds & Bugs; Sentiment from Inkadindado Garden Flower set
Cardstock: Base card and Honeydew from Inner Pack
DP: Purple Gingham Flower Border and Purple Flower Dots from EK Sucess 'Over The Moon Press'
Ink: colored the owl and branch with watercolor paints; outlined all areas of owl with Glitter Pens; I used 'Lime Green', 'Baby Blue' and 'Lavender' from Stickles everywhere on the owl
Tools: Corner Punch and Corner Rounder from EKSuccess
Embellishments: Green bling in the center of the flowers from Studio 18

Thanks for stopping by, have a great evening!


  1. pretty card, helen! love your paper choices!

  3. Such a sweet card! I love the soft colors, and that whimsy little owl you used! Thanks for joining us at CPS this week!


  4. Your owl is stinking cute! Thanks for commenting on my Tuesday trigger card. I brayered right on Kraft cardstock. With the PTI ink I think you could brayer on their white cardstock. Not sure if it would work well on SU cardstock since it is glossy. If you have dye ink I think that glossy is the way to go. PTI ink does not work well with glossy I have to use my SU ink for that. That is a lot of information, but hopefully it answers your question.

    It's a good life!
