Tuesday Trigger

OK so this card is my version of this week's Tuesday Trigger over on the Moxie Fab World.  

Here is the trigger photo which I instantly fell in love with:
and check out the card Betsy Veldman made inspired by it.  Two such stunning cards.
I am guessing you can see how I was inspired... i.e. by EVERYTHING!!!
For my version, I used a set of long neglected K&Co Dollhouse Grand Adhesions, although I peeled off the orange gemstones and replaced them with bright pink ones to match my ribbon.  
As I am terrible at stamping straight, and knew I'd NEVER get 9 squares evenly spaced on my paper, I decided to go digi with the square pattern.  I reduced a 12x12 digi paper to 1x1, then layered over Hero Arts Old Letter Writing, resizing it to fit the square.  Then I copied and pasted it 8 times into a Word document.  Easy.
As this card also contains PINK (myfavourite colour), I am entering it into the current challenge on the Passion for Papertrey blog.
This style is not usual for me - but I love it.  Thanks for the inspiration Jessica and Betsy.

Hi Lucy. A new reader to your blog and hybrid cards, I love your clean simple style. This card is no exception. Just curious, how do you resize the 12 by 12 to a 1 by 1? Did u achieve that on Photoshop? And how did u paste it on word? Many thanks! Love your card, and pink is my fav color too!
