Tuesday Trigger

Hi everyone!!  If you've been following my blog you know that I have dedicated this month to Breast Cancer Awareness and having pink in my cards.  Today's doesn't because I was so drawn to this gorgeous sweater for today's Tuesday Trigger.  Isn't it gorgeous and the colors fun?!  It is most definately sweater weather in Minnesota today!!  Temps are down, real windy and rainy.  Yuck!!  My card is also for Kim's Cancer is for the birds Hop You Can Cling To challenge, this weeks CPS sketch and for Janice's color challenge on Stamp TV, muted colors.  I used white cardstock for my base card and used my Tea Dye Duo to mute it, I did the same thing with the sweet corn layer but I also distressed along the top and bottom to go along with the fringe in the sweater.  The white layer was also muted but prior to that I ran it through with my woodgrain impression plate.  I had to add the buttons like in the sweater!!  :)  I'm not sure if you can see in the picture but I used a tiny bit of yellow in the birds tail to mimic the small amount of yellow in the sweater.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
