Giddy over Tuesday's Trigger

 
I was giddy when I saw this fabulous Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger.  Just looooove the colour array of the blocks as they are very conducive to ahem....leaves....ahem....maple leaves to be precise LOL!

We have quite a few maple trees on our street and they are gloriously displaying these colours so it was the perfect excuse inspiration to put one on my card....at least that is my story and I'm sticking to it :) 

I paired the Trigger with this week's Card Positioning Sketch because the large circle in the sketch was perfect for a maple leaf.  Needless to say, out came my PTI maple leaf die and this card is the result.

For those of you who are beginning to feel a strong subliminal urge to rake maple leaves due all the maple leaf cards I have been posing, take heart!  Our maple trees are beginning to show some signs of dropping their leaves so I'll be raking them off the lawn soon enough as penance for flogging them so shamelessly on my blog!  Until then, I'll enjoy them as long as I can :)

I sure do miss the golden yellow and bright reds of the maples. We don't have them here in the SE. Your card is perfect for this trigger. Great job Marisa.

Marisa, this is gorgeous!!! Love the colours and that layout is perfect!
I'm jealous of your maple trees! They certainly are beautiful in the fall. Just so you know....most of my trees in the yard are on the ground already :( I must rake or mulch this weekend...yuck!
