Red & Rustic

It's been a really long time since I played along with a Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab, but I absolutely loved the current challenge and couldn't pass it up.  I picked up the Basic Grey Little Black Dress paper pad a couple weeks ago and immediately thought of the plaid paper in the back.  I thought it went with the rustic feel of the inspiration photo.  Added a bit of twine, a sentiment and some sweet little jingle bells and off we go.  Thanks to Laurie for this card that inspired my layout!

I'd say that is a perfect match for the Trigger inspiration! Beautifully done, reminds me of a very warm, checkered gingham shirt!
