Moxie Fab Bright Spot

I told you I made three cards last night right? Well, here is the second card, which is also another challenge card. It has been a while since I did a Tuesday Trigger from the Moxie Fab World blog. This week's Trigger is a bright spot during winter. I always forget to add the Trigger photo, but not this week!



Interesting inspiration, right? This photo is from Purl Soho (another interesting little place to take a look-see when I find time). I liked the idea of incorporating circles into my card and I wanted to use white space, too. Another something I had been contemplating was a stamper's take on subway sign art. I've seen lots of examples lately (if you're curious to see what I mean, click here) and I just like the idea of using words on a card. So, I looked through my sentiments and found as many as I could that fit together and conveyed a particular thought.



This is not completely true to the subwart sign art style, just inspired by it. I do like the look, though, and I think I could do more given the number of sentiments I own. I pulled out more buttons to give my card some circles and added just a touch of woodgrain behind the stamped panel to tie in the wood window frame.

This was a fun challenge - hope you have time to try, too!

I'll be back on Monday with something else for you. Hope you stop by and take a peek!
