Muse #136 - Joan Bardee

Just when I didn't think I'd get the time to make a card for our Muse challenge this week - Presto!  I did it!

Here is J.B.'s gorgeous Muse card:

Believe it or not, I actually found a piece of water-colored paper in my stash ... I could hardly believe it was so close to the beauty of a background Joan created ... see what you think:

 
This is a favorite fern from Memory Box - add a simple navy die cut word [SSS] and a layer of white and, phew!  I made it!
 
Hope that you have a few extra moments to be inspired by Joan's beauty today, too!  See you in the gallery!
