Happy Birthday ~ Trigger Tuesday

St. Pat’s Fact: Today, many Catholic places of worship all around the world are named after St. Patrick, including cathedrals in Montreal in Quebec, Canada, New York City , Dublin, and Toowoomba in Queensland, Australia.

Good afternoon!! Well, I’m in the middle of watching the Canadian Men’s Curling playoffs and was glad to have a few hours in the studio before the next game.  This card is for the Tuesday Trigger challenge over on the Moxie Fab World blog.  It’s my first time jumping in to play!! I’ve always admired the challenge photos but never actually played…but how could I not be inspired by this amazing photo?

As you can see, I was totally inspired by the colours and flowers :)  Oh, and the kraft background.  The chair looked vintage/shabby so that’s the look I went for.  Here’s a close up of my flower and ribbon treatment…

I’m also using another button card from Dana who is sharing this image with everyone!!  Thanks again, Dana!!  Do I have birthdays on the mind or what?  LOL  I sold a few birthday cards at work this week so need to refill the stash but I do have birthdays on the brain!! lol  Thanks so much for visiting!!
