Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger: Fall is in the Bag

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger time!!  This card is based on the trigger picture below - I love that bag!  Love the colors and pattern - I even think that peek of orange in the middle of the handles is super cool too!
I figured that this inspiration pic would "trigger" a flurry of circles to appear on cards so I decided to take a different route and try another shape.  Not sure what you call this shape (I should ask Connor since he had Geometry last year) but you can make it too with a 1.25" square punch and a Corner Puncher.
I have a notoriously hard time lining things up perfectly so I used a gridded ruler sheet to line these shapes up the way I wanted - flipped them over, applied glue - then set the kraft paper background right over them.  Used scissors to trim where a few errant pieces went over the edge.
LOVE the graphic look of this card and it is a perfectly "mail-able" card since there aren't lots of bumpy layers!  All cardstock and supplies are from a muse|studio and available online.
