MFW - Tuesday Trigger - StripeTastic

Happy New
to everyone!
Hope you all had a Blessed Christmas and you all enjoy a Happy, Healthy 2012!

I liked this inspirational photo at Moxie Fab World for this week's Tuesday Trigger:
I actually thought I would do something with the 'stripes', like many of the beautiful entries there (check out the above link)...but I ended up using the colors as my inspiration instead. Not sure who the recipient will be on this one~but I really like how it came out and I the person who gets it will have to really like the Glitz :o)

My Card: I added a closeup of the glittery bird, but you can also click on the photo for more detail.
The base card, bird and fine (all over my craft desk) glitter is from Martha Stewart. The dogwood flower card under the bird is a cover for a pocket calendar from 2011 which I could NOT through away ;)
The crochet ribbon trim and buttons are "It's the little things" collection from Fancy Pants...a 'winner day' prize from MFW a few months ago ~Thank You Cath!! All of the sweet colored papers and embellies from this collection are fabulous and the colors match perfectly for this TT challenge.


  1. your bird is gorgeous, helen:) great trigger card!

  2. Happy New Year, Helen! Your card is fantastic. I had to get a closer look to check out all the details. Way to hit the target!

  3. love your take on the trigger...happy new year!!!

  4. Hey Helen! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)

  5. Hi Helen, on Bethann's birthday post the folders were sizzix,cuttlebug, Tim Holtz and Quickcutz. The Quickcutz I bought at the CK convention, they don't sell them in the craft stores here.
    I thought that was cool that you left her a BD message on FB. I tried to find you afterwards, unsuccessfully. Forgive me for leaving this here instead of in an email.

  6. I love your take on the challenge, hit the colors right on and the sparkly little bird is sooo pretty!!!

    Best wishes for 2012, hugs, Karin

  8. Love how you recycled! And Dogwood is one of my all-time favorites! Great combo of colors and papers. Good luck with the trigger. Happy New Year!

  9. Gorgeous! Love how you used the calendar cover - I can see why you kept it. And that glittery bird is fabulous!

  10. Helpful info. Fortunate me I discovered your site by chance, and I am stunned why this coincidence did not came about earlier! I bookmarked it.
