Vintage Vagabond?

Hi when I first saw this Tuesday Trigger over at the Moxie Fab World, it reminded me of some old brass hanging lamps my mother had gotten in Morocco. They were brass with lots of tiny cutouts, as a child I really disliked those lamps. I came upon those lamps again this summer as I was helping my Dad go through the garage. We both traded stories about them, me cleaning him fighting to hang them up after each house move, we were a military family.  

I thought about it for a while and looked at the picture again tonight. My biggest difficulty was thinking of the appropriate sentiment. Tell me what you think.

What a great interpretation of the trigger! Love the gold stripes and sequin accents...and I think the sentiment is perfect!

WOW, Cat, this looks like a winner to me! I love everything about it! Your take on the trigger is perfect. Of course, you know I love the colors & the Hug Snug-Seam Binding! Well done!

When I saw the TT photo, I also thought of using that same HA stamp.
In fact, I've already made a card, just haven't posted it.
