Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

Haven't played along with the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger in a long time, but I made two cards last night for two different challenges and this Tuesday Trigger was one of them:
I was inspired by that large B&W leaf patterned area rug at first, and I had the idea to heat emboss leaves for the strong contrast, but then I was stuck with what to do with the panel I created . . . seriously, I stared at it for almost half an hour and was about to call it a night!

Then I finally came up with this:
I used the pale pink and golden yellow colours from the photo for my butterflies, and the gems mimic all the crystal light fixtures and round mirror from the photo.  As bold as the inspiration photo is, I find it still rather soft, so I softened the edges of my card to balance to bold panel.

I'm fairly pleased with the results.  Stay tuned for my entry for the new Embellish Mag challenge!

Thanks 4 your time!

  6. Love your embossed leaves! I've always been partial to the look of white embossing on colored paper. So pretty!
