Tuesday Trigger card

Hi everyone! I have been eying Cath's Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenges each week but never found time to play along until now. Check out this cutie trigger picture -
I immediately thought of my new 6x6 Webster's Pages from the Sweet as Cherry Pie line (I got mine from Sharon's Webster's Pages Postcards from Paris kit). I have been dying to use this red and white star piece of paper!! The shape of the background around the lamp reminded me of the Top Note die, so I used a favorite layout of mine. I really wanted to use some yellow gingham ribbon I have, but I couldn't get it to look right! So I went with using a strip of the pie and scalloped border each from a different piece from the kit. The sentiment is from Verve's Thankful Hearts.

I thought this would be a perfect card for my mom! She was always baking when I was young and taught me everything I know.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Card Deets:
Stamps - Thankful Hearts
Ink - black
Paper - white, night of navy, Sweet as Cherry Pie (Webster's Pages)
