Tuesday Trigger: Scene In Tangerine

If y’all haven’t noticed – I’m rather partial to color schemes with blue/aqua/mint in them, so playing on the warm side of the color wheel is always a fun challenge for me.  Enter Moxie Fab World’s latest Tuesday Trigger:

Here’s my take:

Pearl Gateway July Cards (1)

As soon as I saw this trigger, I knew exactly what one element I wanted to use as I dug through my stash – those little citrus slices!  But the actual layout left me flustered.  I puttered and futzed until I came up with something I liked.  Thanks to the Studio Calico Atlantic pattern paper (that mimics the ric-rac, no?) flanked with some glitter paper (a Jennifer McGuire trick) and the Ali Edwards/Technique Tuesday sentiment stamp (inked in – count ‘em – three inks!) I was feeling the scene!

Hope you’re living the tangerine dream – what colors do you find yourself gravitating to, and what colors are a challenge?
