Muse Challenge #259

Hello again, my friends!  I found myself a wee little window of time between the loads of fun I have on Monday, to play cards with my friend Barb Ghig ... oh she doesn't even KNOW how much fun we had - in my head - since we're half a country apart!

Barb is the Guest Host at Muse this week - here is her lovely inspiration:


Here is where things got a little bit different - starting by tipping the whole card! 
  • That gorgeous gray - love it so much, it had to be the star!
  • My color came from patterned paper, instead of ink
  • I scribbled ON my blooms - that counts, right?
  • and made mine a birthday wish, rather than anniversary - it still has love enclosed!
  • my enamel dots are standing in as sequins =]
 
 

Congratulations on being our Muse this week, my friend!

=]  Michele

Supplies: 
Paper - You may recognize that these papers are also used here... I'm working my way through this darling Rise & Shine amy tangerine 6x6 pad I've hoarded for TOO long.
MFT Stitched scallop edges die
Wplus9 Happy Wishes stamps, and dies
A jelly roll pen for scribbling.

Now, that right there is why I am not allowed to buy design paper any more.
I just wouldn't be able to cut into it!
I love your interpretation of the Muse card. The pretty grey, with just a hint of colour on those blooms is terrific.

These are lovely! I'm slightly obsessed with grey right now, but don't seem to be able to use it successfully in my card making, Jo x

I love your spin on Barb's pretty card! You've let your gray shine and that pop of color from those funky little blooms is nifty!

The lovely inspiration card has been Michele-ized. Love it! Really like your take on it. The flowers are so fun. The gray paper draws your eye to them wonderfully. Lovely sentiment, too. Great job! :)

Fabulous take on the Muse Michele. I prefer portrait oriented cards so I really like that you turned this one its side

Bobby said...

I love the look of flowers cut from DSP and never think to do it. This is so cute, Michele. I have that stamp set but no 'wishes' die. I may have to change that.

Barb Ghig said...

You have really done such a beautiful job on this card, Michele! I love your choice of papers and blooms, and your sentiment is fabulous! I'm so happy to know that I inspired you to play along...how could you resist using gray, after all :) I also love how you flipped the orientation on the design, too...it's just perfect in every way!!!

Loving your interpretation of Barb's Muse card. So clever to "flip" the gray patterned paper. Love also the pops of color using patterned paper.
