Tuesday Trigger - Sweet on Spring

Hi there! The inspiration for the most recent Tuesday Trigger was provided by Kim Wilson, and it's a sweet one!!! Check this out:

And here's my take on it:

I absolutely LOVED the colors in Kim's inspiration photo! Spring in the mountains usually means LOTS of snow (of the heavy, wet variety)...but after that we typically roll right on into what we fondly refer to as "MUD SEASON!" Yep, when all that snow from the winter starts to melt and run down the mountains creating, well...lots of muddy trails...but also some of the most beautiful waterfalls I've ever seen!!

With all of that in mind, I broke out my "Wellies & Brellas" collection from Autumn Leaves and went to town. Can you believe this card has ZERO stamping on it? WOAH!! I printed the sentiment in Microsoft Word. And the rest is simply patterned paper, cardstock, ribbon, decorative edge scissors, a corner rounder and some adhesive. And I LOVE the result!!!!!

A couple of close-ups:

Do you like it?

Well, it's snowing a bit hear today, so I think I'm going to take a field trip to town to get a hot tea! Have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
