Lately I stumbled upon another new challenge blog called Muse Challenge. I was even more intrigued when I saw this video of my former CAS-ual Fridays team mate Suzanne (who is the latest Muse). I just adore Suzanne and call her "my little friend"! Do check out her lovely blog The Card Yard if you haven't! She has a sweet and elegant style with a CAS vibe!
Here are the simple rules:
Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse.Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions.
Vote for 3 of your fellow member's submissions that you find inspiring.
After seeing the video and Suzanne's gorgeous card (XOXO), I was inspired!
What was I inspired by?
1. the diecut : Scallop Circle was used for the top part of the card. It is also to simulate the scallop borders of Suzanne's card
2. flower theme
3. dark background for the flowers
I was also eager to use my new toys from Simon Says Stamps (Fresh Daisies Craft Dies and Folded Banner Craft Die). And of course, I want to use Leafy Vines for the chalkboard effect. The sentiment is from SRM Stickers. It works seamlessly with the diecut banner!
Ding---> Not into coloring? You can always use distress inks! Just use part of a sponge and start dabbing away...mixing colors is always fun. Add some shine--voila!
