Muse Challenge - Anita Bowden

The inspiration card from this week's Muse #86 couldn't be more beautiful... the time and attention to detail is exceptional... check it out:

Of course, one must work with what she has, right?  So, with a little help from Clearly Besotted, and Hero Arts Pale Tomato - which I even used to colorize the vellum:

Wonderful Words die from PTI; pierced circle, MFT.
Inside sentiment: "For your sacrifices to make the world a safer place for all of us."
 
Thank you, Anita for being our Muse!  You may just see a 'second helping' on this one - maybe blue?!

I commented on this previously from my mobile but it clearly didn't send! Love this, Michele. Those poppies are fab and the red and black are a great combo. I love that you were inspired by my card and I see you've now made your second...I'm off there now! :) x
