Muse Card Challenge #202

Happy Friday!! This week has gone by fast and next week will be busy too. Valentines Day and then my birthday on Wednesday. Chris will be traveling so it will be just the girls. Sometimes that can be fun!!

Today I am sharing a card that I created for Muse Challenge #202.

This weeks Muse was Anita Bowden and her card that inspired my card is below.

I was inspired by bright, happy colors in the stamped background of Anita's card. My card is quite different but sometimes that happens when I CASE a card.

I started off by stamping my flowers and leaves in different spring colors using Simon Says Stamps "Wild Beauty" stamp set. This has been sitting in my stash, just waiting for me to use. Now that I have inked it up, I am not sure why it sat in my pile for so long. It was a lot of fun to use!!

When I was done stamping, I die cut the card base using Mama Elephant's "All Prettied Up" dies. I then mounted it onto a top folding, A2, coral color card.

I die cut the black sentiment using a My Favorite Things "Thank You Die-namics" (retired) and covered it with sparkle using a Spectrum Clear Marker. I then stamped the "you" with Simon Says Stamps "Thanks" stamp set.

I finished off the card using Stickles and Nuvo Crystal drops in the flowers.

Well, the card does not look like Anita's card but it WAS inspired by her card. Totally a fun card to create!!

I thank you for stopping by today. Have a WONDERFUL day!!
