Hello


Hello everyone! I have another card to share and this one is for the Muse Challenge #47. Our Muse this week is the talented and sweet Therese Calvird...I always enjoy CASEing her cards!

I recently bought Paper Smooches ‘Free Spirits’ stamp set and dies. I masked off the puny sentiment that said ‘Merlot’ and used my ‘Hello’ die...ya know, like from the movie Jerry Maguire! Anyway, I thought it would also be fun to use the champagne glass in the set and silver foiled cardstock for the negative portion of the die. Then, I added my brand new sequins (another addiction of mine) that I purchased from Paulina’s (Pretty Pink Posh) Etsy’s Store.




I'm not sure why the silver foiled cardstock and sequins don't look silver in this photo...could be my pc, or my poor editing skills, so here is a close up:


I hope everyone has a great weekend, and that your holiday shopping is going well! Thank you all so much for stopping by!
Barb

Great take on the Muse Barb - metallics are always frustrating to photograph.

Super fab card Barb, love love love the fun sentiment and those sequins look amazing! I always struggle to photograph silver or mirror card and tend to avoid it for my blog cards, but there really must be a way.... if you find out the secret please let me know, maybe it's my user error lol!

Congratulations on being a featured member at Muse challenge, Barb. It´s a great card and the quote is fun. The close up really helped to see the silver foiled cardstock... there are some tricky materials to take pictures of.
