Guest Design for MUSE Challenge!

Hello Friends!  I am super uber happy to share a guest design project with you today! When the founder of Muse Challenge Jacki Rockwell asked me to guest design for her Muse Challenge this week, I was absolutely thrilled! Of course, I tried hard to come up with a design that hopefully will inspire you to create.

Ready to see the card for the Muse Challenge?
This is my card....
Happy Mother's Day
 What do you think? I hope this card inspires you to create!! I made this card with CAS-ual Fridays' New April release called Mums The Word which comes with 3 sizes of flower stamps. I basically created a colorful background with a circle for masking. You can use any shapes/stamps/colors and just stamp to your heart's content. 
Ding---> 1. Cut out a piece thin paper with the punch/diecut. 2. Apply washi tape underneath (as double sided tape) to secure the mask. 3. Stamp around the mask. tip: The more intense the stamped images are, the more defined the masked area will be,

And please note the 3 simple rules for the Muse Challenge

1. Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse.
2. Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions.
3. Vote for 3 of your fellow member's submissions that you find inspiring.

 They are as easy as 1-2-3! And tons of fun! I can't wait to see what you create! I would love it if you can check out the Muse Challenge if you haven't! Thanks for stopping by!
