MFW - TT

The Tuesday Trigger-In Transition at Moxie Fab World this week has lots of card ideas swirling in my head for some reason and  I already made a card to post!  I believe THAT is a record for me ~  LOL.
Inspiration photo where I picked up the colors and straight overlapping lines


Now, I am not sure why I have such a tough time adding elements that have no connection with each other (like the cartoony star fish and the straight lines of not-even-sea-related patterned colors along with the Hello sentiment??) onto my cards, but...this one just seemed to happen.  :-) 
The "straight lines" of color and patterns are decorative and washi tapes: the hello stamp is from Hampton Arts;  the starfish was a plastic pick that topped a cupcake (1 of 6 :) that I bought in the grocery store bakery last week, I added the googly eyes ~ be on the lookout for his sea-mates!

Have not decided which way I will finish the inside yet, any thoughts?

  4. I think you're nonrelated items melded like magic, Helen, and ended up being perfect fits for each other! I like the vertical top one with the hello on the side because the starfish is front and center, focus pocus, looking straight at the recipient!!

  5. Simplicity at it's best! This card is fun! I like both ways. Is there a way to accommodate horiz/vertical sentiment on the inside? The whole thought fits the 'funess of the card!
