Just a note

Happy Thursday! I don't know about anyone else, but I really can't wait 'til Friday this week! Is it just me or did this week crawl by? Hmm, maybe it was just me :)

I'm here to share a card that's been sitting in my head ever since I saw this Moxie Fab World Trigger image:

I love that cute fabric envelope! It's so dainty and sweet! I just had to recreate it for the challenge, so here goes:

Just a note (1)

For the background I used a plaid pattern out of the 'Isn't it Romantic' 6x6 paper pad by Inque Boutique. I really wish I had a plaid stamp so that I could have made the card more monochromatic (like the inspiration image) but then I couldn't have also entered this card into the Wee Memories challenge for this week - to use patterned paper. Just for extra fun I'll enter this into the Simon Says Stamp challenge for this week which is Anything Goes!

 The rolled rose was made out of a circle cut from the same paper as the background (using a technique demonstrated by the awesome Jennifer McGuire in her Inspiration Showcase!). I glued it down with glossy accents and popped a little half pearl in the centre of the rose.

Just a note (3)
I distressed the edges of the white stitched layer to make it look a little worn and uneven - like fabric! I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Black Onyx ink using a sentiment from Kaisercraft's mini stamp set called 'Thinking of you'.
Thanks for taking a peek! I'm sure I'll be back on the weekend (yay, can't wait!)


  1. Cute design Jess and I love the little matching flower :)

  2. Oh Jess, how sweet is this! I love how you've kept the patterned paper simple, as to not steal the show but still shine too!

  3. Such a sweet card!!! I love your take on the trigger - that flower is beyond adorable!

  4. Love your card, is just perfect.

  5. Hey Jess! Thanks for linking this up to this week's Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World! I'm so glad you joined in on all the fun! :)
