MUSE Challenge #11

A quick post for the Muse Challenge #11 card!
This beautiful card by Laurie Wilson
is the latest MUSE! How gorgeous is that? Laurie used some sophisticated elements for her design and yet it conveys so much with that text background!

I made a card based on the layout and sentiment.
031
Supplies: Daisy Craft Die (Simon Says Stamps), My Favorite, Woodgrain Background  (Hero Arts), American Crafts (Washi Tape and paper). sequins
Ding--->Have you tried using two Spellbinders to create a "frame"? First, I stamped the Wood-grain and then I chose two Spellbinders (Label 8) and created the frame! You still have a small diecut to use! Absolutely no waste!

Here are the three simple rules for Muse Challenge:
  • Use the Muse card as inspiration, explain your interpretation and link back to Muse. 
  • Provide supportive comments to at least 3 of your fellow member’s submissions. 
  • Vote for 3 of your fellow member's submissions that you find inspiring. Voting will begin at 12 noon EST on Saturday and ends on Sunday at 12 noon EST. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love the green on the kraft - it really pops! I also love that you have all of the elements of the Muse, but you've made it clearly yours!
