|Card by Therese|
One of my college roommates has been divorced a long time. Recently I was delighted to get a "Save the Date" card from her for a summer wedding. I wanted to use those colors as much as I could to send her my congratulations. The MUSE inspiration card this week by Therese gave me a starting point. As you can see, I used the layout, yellow floral background & blossom focal point. My background is made with Penny Black "blissful" stamped in Distress Inks scattered straw & wild honey onto spritzed watercolor paper. The flower is the inside part of the blossom in Penny Black's "to you" clear set. I black embossed it twice, sponged on VersaMagic Turquoise Gem & Aquatic Splash, fussy cut & attached them together with foam tape. The center is accented with gold micro beads & a touch of gold Stickles. I bent the edges up for dimension & mounted it to the card with foam tape. After die-cutting a circle, stamping the sentiment from Flourishes "Taglines" in VersaMagic Gingerbread & wrapping it with white fibers, the top panel is also mounted with foam tape. Kept getting interrupted so took several days to put this together, but I'm happy with the final result & I think she'll like it.
Before I go, have to share a cute picture of my old puppy dog, Keesha. Couldn't figure out where she was--looked throughout the house & then went back to my work table & realized she was sleeping under my chair! It's amazing I hadn't stepped on her when I got up. Hope you have a great weekend & thanks for coming by.
