Oooooooh Funky!

This is the picture for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger this week! It's called "Time to Chillax" :0)

I'm still feeling a little pastelled out (is that a real term?) from the baby card run, which is odd - because my very first report card ever brought home noted how much I LOVED pastel colours :0) Not much has changed! And they WILL be back!

Anyway, when I first saw these popsicles, I immediately thought of the amazing Dawn McVey - and her layers of luscious, luminous colours - colours - colours!

So layers of luscious colours - and some "Dawn Style" is where the mojo took me :0)


I used some pieces of Papertrey Designer Paper, and stamped some images on the other paper strips, before layering them like lollipops :0) - my background colours are a mix of Hawaiian Shores and Raspberry Fizz (which is the MOST difficult colour to photograph - don't you think??!)


My flower is a mix of stamping and felt - and the card was finished off with stitching - top and bottom and some beautiful buttons!

And this card is bright and cheerful and happy - and not pastel coloured. Aaaaaaaah! I got my colour fix!!!

Thanks for popping in! With the weekend HERE - I hope it's a good one!!

Smiles!!

Materials: All Papertrey Ink; Except - Felt (unknown); Ribbon - Michaels; Orange Cardstock - Bazzill

ETA: I'm sooooo excited to have had this card chosen as a "Trigger Target" this week! Eeeeep!!

Very pretty and great 'Dawn type' card too! I've copied that image to possibly try and incorporate into a card. Still haven't come up with something other then I want one of those popsicles to eat! The colors are luscious and you did a fantastic job!

Your layout with all those fun strips of patterns is so pretty!!! Looks like a great CASE of Dawns's style!!!

Great job. Love all the bright colors! I agree raspberry fizz is very hard to photograph so it looks like it does in real life.

Oh WOW! This is just amazing!! I love, love, love the bold color, and your design is so fun! :)

And, I have to completely agree w/you about Raspberry Fizz... I have the hardest time capturing the true color in photos... Mine always wants to be an odd red color. LOL :)

So pretty! I like the bold colors in strips on your card and the ribbon and the type font. Yes, I agree that Raspberry is a tricky one to photograph at times!
