Best Wishes with Felt

MUSE card by Marion
When I first saw Marion's MUSE card for the current challenge, all I could think of was exactly what she had done--love the look of her card!  Decided to walk away & work on something else.  Today my card came together.  It's completely different than Marion's, but I was inspired by her elements of white space, 2 main colors & a simple sentiment.  Pinwheels make me think of Spring & I had so much fun making them a few months back.  I stuck with pink & purple but very different shades using these fun bright felts from MFT.  I cut the squares by hand & used the MFT rolled roses smallest die.  The open bracket border is also a die from MFT.  The simple sentiment is by Stampendous! & is stamped with my favorite black ink--Versafine Onyx Black.  I stamped on the textured cardstock perfectly the first time!  May save this for hubby's college age granddaughter as I think she'd enjoy it.  Since this will be a birthday card & includes the die cuts, I'm entering the Die Cut Divas challenge. Back to work tomorrow & for the weekend--don't know how I did full-time all those years--LOL!  Hope you have some sunshine--in your heart if not outside.  Thanks for taking time to stop by my blog.

  7. I love it when a card just "comes together", don't you? It rarely happens to me. Love how dramatic those two colors make this, plus the design is perfect. Stunning card.

    So glad you joined us over at Die Cut Divas.

  11. Hi Greta - the week passed so quickly that I'm playing catch-up with all your STUNNING cards! Each is so unique, that picking a favourite would be impossible! From elegant, to 'felty' to circles (how smart are you to see the gauge as you did!) and everything inbetween - totally wonderful! Hope your Keesha is feeling better! As a former mini-schnauzer mom to two fur-babies, I know how special they are! One of my girls lived to 18!!! I'm 'planning' a Muse entry, but I'm still at the 'think' stage! Have a great Friday.
