MUSE #40

Life has been busy and I haven't posted in a while but I just HAD to enter the MUSE challenge since lovely Darnell is the guest muse this week.  Here is her wonderful card which is an homage to breast cancer awareness.


I was inspired by the colors and the floral design.


I used PTI's Meadow Greens for the flower, stamped in Spun Sugar Distress Ink and Hero Arts Soft Leaf.  The sentiment is from PTI's Healing Touch.  I used an EKSuccess border punch on a scrap of green and threaded pink ribbon through it.  This card base was in my stash with a funky border on it, so I cut if off and voila' it was perfect for this card.  The top of the card is actually narrower than the bottom by the width of the white edge you see.  In other words, the green border is the edge of the top of the card.  It looks a lot darker in the photo but is exactly the same color as the stamping IRL.

I hope I can get back to some regular crafting and posting.  We'll see but until then, Happy Crafting to you all.
