Tuesday Trigger: An Exercise in Exotic

A quick card to share today that I made with Merci Bouquet from Layers of Color. I used the colors from the Just for Fun Color Challenge and made this for the Tuesday Trigger: An Exercise in Exotic. I was inspired by the flower on the bottom of the door of the jewel box and the patterns. If you haven't seen the box, it is beautiful and oh so inspiring!! The top of the card was stenciled with the Bella Brocade (a favorite of mine) Art Stencil.

It has been a busy weekend and start of the week with special meetings at our church. The Lord blessed and we were able to spend some time with a dear couple we have known for years .... Today we start back to school (homeschool) and looking forward to more structure to our day. If you ask me in 2 months, I will be longing for a break I am sure. :o) Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to get back to commenting on blogs later today!
Blessings,

Your card is lovely! Very nice coloring of your image and I love the inking detail around your die cut! Thanks for joining us at JFF this week!

Love the paper pieced vase! Wow, homeschooling, I could never do it. We always have 2 teachers in a room, so if you need a breather, (it is a high school for emotionally impaired though).

Such a pretty card, Jennie! Wonderful bg paper you made, lovely colors too!

Enjoy the first days of school. I always loved the freshness of starting back to learning and going to school when I was a child. You're doing the best thing for your children by homeschooling, bravo! I admire all homeschooling moms.

hugs!
