Tuesday Trigger

I was inspired by the Tuesday Trigger on the Moxie Fab World and this is my first time to participate. You can find the Tuesday Trigger here: http://www.moxiefabworld.com/2011/02/tuesday-trigger-sweets-for-sweet.html
I loved all the pink and overall romantic feel. Also liked the texture from the cupcake wrappers and the scallops hanging over the edge of the box. So here is what I came up with:


This is so not my style of card but all the pink really inspired me more toward vintage than clean and simple. I loved making the glittered chipboard frame. I painted it first and while the paint was still wet sprinkled it with glitter. I used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress ink on the edges of the card and the scalloped circle. On the first scalloped border I crumpled it then dragged the Vintage Photo ink pad over it and spritzed it with water. The leaves are spritzed with Perfect Pearls to add a little sparkle. I used Worn Lipstick to ink the white flower and put a small pink heart gemstone in the middle and layered the flower on top of the lace bow. All the stamping was done with Vintage Photo. The Happy Birthday frame was distressed with Antique Linen and used pop dots to adhere it to the middle of the chipboard frame. I had fun making this card even though it was out of my comfort zone and plan on trying more vintage cards in the future.
