Tuesday Trigger: Oh So Lovely!

Hello, I know everyone doesn't have young children. Mine is just about out of high school. But he still goes to a Pediatrician, and he pointed out this sign to me in her office on our last visit. Of course he wanted to pick and choose the numbers he wanted me to read...
Check it out for yourself (Please do enlarge) lol


OK, Here's my favorite challenge, the Tuesday Trigger photo from the Moxie Fab site... I think it is just gorgeous. Now I'm a real rookie when it comes to distressing. That was what I tried to do. I still need lot's of practice. lol...

Here's my card...
I wanted to do the sentiment in one of the theme colors, but I could not figure out which one, and time was running out...

General Deets:
Cardstock: Recollection/Michaels (kraft); The Paper Company/ White; Imagine That (Pink, Blue/green, Gold/orange)
Patterned Paper; Making Memories (Diecut Lattice Poolside Paperie)
Stamp: Hero Arts ( Friendly Greetings )
Accents: Flower Rhinestone/Unknown, silk flowers/AC Moore
Ribbon: AC Moore
Ink: Whispers/Black, Stampin Up (Creamy caramel and Pixie Pink)

Templates: Spellbinders

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate your visit!
